Queer Woman of Color Film Fest

By Charlotte Robinson, June 10, 2016
This weekend the Queer Woman of Color Media Arts Project presents the 12th annual Queer Woman of Color Film Festival that takes place June 10th through June 12th in San Francisco, California at the Brava Theatre. Opening Night Screening is “Magical Fantastical” on Friday June 10th at 7:30P. “Magical Fantastical” bestows the night with sparkling delight, from the sorcery of stereotypes that threaten a bisexual Chicana & the loving allure of femme friends to the rites of queer community through Cumbia. On Saturday June 11th there’s a important Filmmaker Roundtable entitled “Exponential Hustle” at 3P. Then the Featured Screening on Saturday is “Wages of Injustice” at 7P. “Wages of Injustice” reveals the sleight of hand it takes to live & love amidst poverty & income inequality. On Sunday the Centerpiece Screening is “Encuentros Con Amor” on June 12th at 2P. “Encuentros Con Amor” is a remarkable international program of queer & trans films from Latin America that includes QWOCMAP Films from Tijuana, Mexico. Then the Closing Night Screening is “Haven Bound” on Sunday June 12th at 6P. “Haven Bound,” summons the blessings of family from an Asian mother & daughter facing loss to safe havens for Black women, from the grace of Lebanese-Palestinian families to the adoption of all kinds of kids, these films invoke the blessing of wholeness. QWOCMAP creates, exhibits & distributes new films that authentically reflect the lives of queer women of color & addresses the vital social justice issues that concern multiple communities. They actively bridge seemingly disparate populations to transform & empower our filmmakers, audiences & communities through art, activism & community building. The 2016 Queer Women of Color Film Festival is absolutely FREE of charge.
