LGBT+ Film Festival Poland is one of the most important events on the cultural map of Central and Eastern Europe, presenting a wide variety of queer cinema which brings us closer to building a world of freedom and equality.
Bold queer artistic cinema, hits from world festivals, films by uncompromising visionaries. The cinema that gets involved in issues not only of the LGBT+ community but us all!

The 16th edition of the festival will be held in a hybrid form; the physical screenings will be held in 8 Polish cities between April 4-11, 2025 and then proceed online for 14 days, geo-blocked to Poland.
We stick to the hybrid formula which enables you to enjoy the biggest queer film art fest in Poland both at the cinema and in the comfort of your own home. We do all of that, so as many of you as possible can be carried away by the queer cinema's madness.

We are looking for:

– full-length features
– full-length documentaries
– short films (narrative, animated, documentary)

Queerness, diversity and inclusivity (Queerité, diversité et inclusivité!) are our trademarks.

Best of luck!

    Very good festival!

    The staff is very professional, kind and helpful. The festival is held in a very beautiful and pleasant place, like a lighthouse in the night. Incredible events every nights and good occasions to network with other directors ! The selection of shorts, documentaries and feature films is great, and many of the programs are presented by the directors or members of the cast of the film. it's too bad that there is only public awards for one short film and one feature film, whereas this amazing festival deserves to have jury prices in several categories.

    But this is such a good festival and I definitely recommend it. It will be a pleasure for me to come back with another film and I hope this time I could present it and talk to the public, because this is why I came for.

    Thank you again LGBT + Film Festival Poland to have in your Gay Short Stories selection my short film The Loire River (La Loire) for its World Premiere.

    And special thanks to Wiktor and the staff.

    First they invited me, then I send them all the required Material and en the end they didn't show the film and told me it will be screened next year. WTF?!
    That's not very professional.
