Written by Mindy Kaling, directed by Nisha Ganatra (whose film Chutney Popcorn capped off Inside Out in 2000), and starring Emma Thompson, Late Night might seem too good to be true.

When late-night talk show host, Katherine Newbury (Emma Thompson,) is accused of being “a woman who hates women,” she hires her first and only female staff writer, Molly (Mindy Kaling).This lack of inclusion is only the tip of the iceberg for the show, which is also suffering from low ratings and an unsupportive network. Wanting to prove that she is more than just a diversity hire, Molly sets out to help Katherine and to save her show, one punchline at a time.

Late Night tackles misogyny and white privilege, while taking a closer look at the complicated working life of women with and without power.


Join us as we cap another fierce year of queer storytelling at our Closing Gala After Party, following the film screening!

As we approach our 30th birthday we can’t party like we used to. That’s why we’re moving our Closing Night Party to Saturday. Now you can spend the next day in a dark cinema instead of sitting beneath the harsh fluorescent lights in your office.

Drink, dance, skee-ball, repeat.
