You must hold all necessary rights for the submission of your film to the festival. ENTRIES MUST CONTAIN LGBTQ CONTENT. Entries are accepted starting June 15 for the following June festival. Entries must be received by July 1 of the festival year. Due to the high volume of entries, we strongly encourage early submissions. Screeners received after July 1 will be considered for the next festival year. We accept rough cuts and working versions, but they must be submitted by the entry deadline.
