Regensburg may be just a small city on the banks of the Danube, but it still offers a surprisingly vibrant variety of film festivals (e.g. the International Short Film Week). With its 5th instalment in 2016 QUEER-STREIFEN has proven to be popular among moviegoers and critics alike.
During the 6th QUEER-STREIFEN festival from November 2nd to 8th 2017, we want to continue our well received program of LGBTQ short films from around the world. The best short film will be awarded by a jury of three. Since 2016 there are three audience awards for one gay, one lesbian and one queer Short film. The festival is non-profit and non-commercial. It is organized by the “Arbeitskreis Film Regensburg e.V. “. To allow the festival to bring the vivid diversity of LGBTQ short films to the silver screen, we would like to encourage you to submit your films.
