Leeds Queer Film Festival takes place over three days in March 2018. We screen short and feature length films in all genres.

We are creating a space to showcase queer cinema with a focus on independent and DIY films. We aim to screen films that elevate and prioritise the voices and work of those most marginalised within our queer communities. We also welcome films from queer people that don’t explicitly have a ‘queer’ focus.

We are not for profit and any money raised goes towards supporting queer filmmakers as much as possible and we aim to make the festival as affordable and accessible as we can. The festival is organised by volunteers and is open to newcomers each year.

Audience Award cash prize

Film must be in English language or with English language subtitles.

Please only complete this form if you have the authority or permission to submit this film, and if you have the intention to have your film screened at our festival if it is selected.

    Good communication about what was about to happen, and a nice little message afterwards.
    Unfortunately I was unable to attend the event in person but I sure hope to do that next time.

    Great festival with caring staff. It was a pleasure screening our music video at a festival dedicated to the LGBT community.

    Outstanding films shown where a commitment to accessibility is put into practice. Prioritizing "voices and work of those most marginalised within our queer communities" and they mean it.
