Bent Sacramento LGBTQ Film Festival (formerly SIGLFF, the Sacramento International Gay & Lesbian Film Festival) is now in it's 29th year of bringing the best queer films to the Sacramento area. As the longest continuously running film festival in Sacramento, we are dedicated to continuing this tradition.
This year, due to Covid19 concerns, we have decided to make our film festival virtual. If you do not want your film screened that, please do not submit.
Audience Award for Best Feature ($750)
Audience Award for Best Short ($500)
