DocNights with Thomas Jefferson University
Presented with Thomas Jefferson University, DocNights showcases celebrated contemporary documentaries exploring vital issues that affect our world, followed by enriching post-screening Q&As featuring the documentary subjects, filmmakers, and university conversation partners.
During 2019-2020, DocNights with Thomas Jefferson University will feature four compelling films about diverse issues that members of the LGBTQ+ community experience every day. Whether it is an internal journey of self-discovery and recovery, coming out to loved ones, or facing challenges in the workplace, this collection hopes to inform while encouraging compassion and enriching conversations. The series is co-presented with William Way LGBT Community Center.
In an effort to bring these important and enlightening stories to members of the Philadelphia community, DocNights with Thomas Jefferson University is FREE to attend.
