The Fargo-Moorhead LGBT Film Festival seeks to celebrate Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender lived experience through the visions of innovative film and video makers. We seek films and videos that enrich, entertain, and encourage a sense of community. This festival hopes to recognize the diversity of local, regional, national, and international LGBT communities.

Since 2009 the Fargo-Moorhead LGBT Film Festival has provided a much needed source of insight and entertainment, through the eyes of queer film-makers. From documentaries to romantic-comedies the film festival provides a wide range of film exposure opportunities for our viewers.

Each year, a representative jury views a wide range of submissions to bring you the most thought-provoking, entertaining and pivotal films.

Rules & Terms

We are seeking films and videos that have content that addresses Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender lived experience.
We recognize that filmmakers from marginalized groups are often also economically disadvantaged. For that reason, we have kept our entry fees very low.
We do not have a standing budget for rentals. If your film will require a rental fee you MUST LET FESTIVAL STAFF KNOW ON SUBMISSION. If you do not let us know, we will assume that the film can be screened without a fee.
