Join us for the first ever Queer 2 Queer Film Festival, showcasing the LGBTQ+ films that prime time can’t handle (yet), celebrate queerness in all its forms, speak exclusively to the community, and tell stories unmarred by pandering decisions that allows for easier mainstream or crossover appeal. Send us your movies that are “too queer” for people who aren’t allies yet. Ally filmmakers welcome.

Awards will be given for:
Best Film (1st, 2nd, and 3rd places)
Miss Originality
Best trope subversion
Bigotry slayer
Most empowering moment
Taste the Rainbow

Open to all queer films from the 21st century. Shorts are preferred and features are welcome.

Submission fees are $10 for shorts up to 10 minutes, $15 for shorts up to 30 minutes, and $20 for films longer than 30 minutes.

Submissions will be accepted through FilmFreeway on or before October 24, 2021.
