Leeds Queer Film Festival takes place over four days in March 2019. 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 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

    Unfortunately I wasn't able to attend the screening of my film but the folks at LQFF have just been amazing and so welcoming. I'm honoured that my film was part of this very important community-organised festival. Thank you also so much for awarding us an Audience Choice Award. Looking forward to joining you in the future! <3

    One of the best festival experiences I have had. On top of the screenings there were workshops & talks.
    Before the event communication was prompt and informative.
    The audience was engaged in my film, clearly cared for the LGBT issues and had some good questions during Q&A.
    I was only meant to be there for a day and when I decided to stay and the organisers sorted accommodation at that last minute which was remarkable.
    I will be back to attend with or without a film

    They were all very kind by mail, and the catalogue presents an excellent program. A real pity we can't attend the festival because of no low-cost flights from Rome.

    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.
