Welcome to the BiCONIC Film Festival!
We center on the Bi+ umbrella, bisexual, pansexual, polysexual, multisexual, fluid, omnisexual, or anyone attracted to more than one gender. We were launched in 2023 by artists and activists who perceived the programming of other LGBTQ+ film festivals as lacking a focus on the bi+ communities!
The event will stage a program of independent features, short films, and digital media for two evenings over three months apart.
One evening is attached to Bi Visibility Week in September 2023, and the other after the Bi-BQ on the Wednesday before SF Pride 2024.
We focus primarily on works created from an activist and community-building perspective, and we hope you will send us your Bi+ content to share with the community!
All selections will receive the following:
- official selection laurel
- inclusion in the curated compilation of shorts that will be provided to libraries, community groups, and organizations through our web presence.
