The Bangalore Queer Film Festival (BQFF) is an annual event that carefully selects queer films from all over the world and brings them to an ever-growing audience in Bengaluru. The festival will serve as an important platform for screening new Indian movies. Bengaluru has hosted film festivals on themes related to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT or Queer) communities since 2003.
This edition will be the tenth anniversary. It is now open for submissions and the last date for it is January 15, 2018. The final schedule of films will be released in the first week of February, 2018.
It’s the BQFF 10th anniversary! Send us your films. Long, short, live, anime, all things queer. https://t.co/lMpYYqsSGx

The festival is committed to the circulation of good queer cinema, including films from non-Western locations, films by independent filmmakers, popular cinema that experiments with LGBT themes, and experimental films that push aesthetic limits.
The BQFF also includes efforts to support other kinds of work: Queer cultural performances, photo exhibitions, art exhibitions and book launches have all been a part of the festival’s history.
Details of entry are available on the website.
