Calling all Queer dancers! Now accepting film submissions for the inaugural Queer Dance Film Festival (QDFF), a dazzling showcase of LGBTQIA+ performances from across the globe.
Created by and for the queer dance community, our mission is to uplift LGBTQIA+ artists while challenging homophobia and gender norms. QDFF gives us the spotlight we all deserve.
We're bringing in shining stars from all over the Gaylaxy, and seeking out dance films from queer, trans, and gender-nonconfirming BIPOC movement artists.
The Queer Dance Film Festival promotes the visibility and expression of LGBTQ+ dancers worldwide. It is free to submit to the festival. The festival does not offer funds for the creation or screening of selected films.
All selected films will receive Official Selection laurels.
