Queerbee is an LGBTQI community enterprise. Set up by filmmakers to curate programmes of short films, recycle older films and tour them to new audiences in a fun and informative way. Profits are recycled too, back into queer filmmaking and for hard-to-reach queer audiences.

Do you have a short film, on any LGBTQI theme, made at any time? Please submit it here. You must own the rights to your film, which is provided royalty-free.

Would you like to host a QueerBee film night? Please get in touch.
