Regensburg is a truly modern city with a surprisingly vibrant variety of film festivals (e.g. the International Short Film Week, the HARD:LINE Festival, Transit Filmfest, CinEScultura or the Stummfilmwoche).
During the 12th QUEER-Streifen festival in October 2023, we want to continue our well received programme of LGBTQ films from around the world. The award for the best short film will be decided by a jury of three.
The audience decides which films get the audience award for best gay, lesbian and queer short film.
The festival is non-profit and non-commercial.
To allow the festival to bring the vivid diversity of LGBTQ films to the silver screen, we would like to encourage you to submit your work.
QUEER-Streifen is member of QueerScope, the organisation of independent German queer film festivals.
