The East Village Queer Film Festival" (EVQ) celebrates queer film in all it's glorious diversity. We welcome filmmakers who entertain, explore and promote queer-themed issues and as well as the downtown avant garde. EVQ's further goal is community building through queer cinema. EVQ promotes the work of queer film and fosters a highly inclusive environment for all artists. You don't have to be LGBT to submit your film but you do have to be Queer!

EVQ will present awards for Best Feature Film, Best Short Film & The Golden Raspberry Award in the "Future Cult Classic" Category

    I felt very fortunate to have screened my short at the EVQ. The organizers were extremely warm and professional. I'm looking forward to seeing the progress of this festival and would absolutely recommend submitting.

    I was honored to have my film apart of the East Village Queer Film Festival! Loved that they always responded quickly & were very detailed with their emails. Also, very friendly. The venue was really nice and welcoming. Hope that next year they have the filmmakers do Q&A's after screenings. I'd submit again & recommend it to friends.

    Thanks Tom and Co for the inaugural EQFF.
    It's always great to come over to NYC, screen my movie and I met some awesome like minded film makers.
    One of the few Festivals in the world that give me that opportunity.
    To show my film Thanks!
