The Queer Women of Color Film Festival is held every year in June in San Francisco and features films that address the vital social justice issues that concern women of color and our communities, authentically reflect our life stories, and build community through art and activism. Enjoy the creativity of emerging media artists who are Asian/Pacific Islander, Black/African American, Chicana/Latina, Native American and Mixed-Race lesbians, same-gender loving, bisexual, queer, questioning women, and genderqueer, gender non-conforming, transgender folks.
Now in its eighth year, the Festival started in June 2003 in one room at the San Francisco’s LGBT Community Center with a free screening that drew standing-room-only crowds. In 2005, the packed annual film screenings expanded into the 1st Annual Queer Women of Color Film Festival. In 2007, we expanded into the 375-seat Brava Theater. This year the festival has expanded again, moving to the 757-seat Novellus Theater at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts. The Film Festival is still free thanks to generous grants, donors and partners; includes free refreshments provided by local restaurants and businesses; and features an exciting panel and/or performance each year.
