Queer Women of Color Film Festival

By Charlotte Robinson, June 11, 2020
This year the Queer Women of Color Media Arts Project will premiere 31 brand new films in 3 screenings during their virtual live-streamed 16th Annual San Francisco International Queer Women of Color Film Festival that runs from June 12th to 14th. From barren land around our communities & displacement that uproots us & weeds out who is welcome in our neighborhoods to the insides of homes typically thought of as safe & nurturing their 16th anniversary Festival Focus is “Safe Space No Place: LBTQ People of Color” digs up how spatial injustice seeds discourse & proliferates violence against oppressed communities. Each screening program will begin at 7P PST & be completely live-streamed from the introductory remarks to the films to the interactive filmmaker Q&As. All films are Subtitled for the Deaf & Hard-of-Hearing & ASL Interpretation & CART live open captions will be provided for the live interactive filmmaker Q&As. The Queer Women of Color Media Arts Project (QWOCMAP) began in 2000 with funding from California Arts Council for award-winning San Francisco filmmaker Madeleine Lim to conduct a series of free workshops serving queer women of color emerging media artists. Since then over 200 new films have been created through their training program single-handedly increasing the number of films by & about queer women of color. These politically insightful, socially relevant & personally poignant works challenge all forms of racial, political, economic, sexual & gender stereotyping & offer new dynamic representations of queer women of color. The 16th annual Queer Women of Color Film Festival is free of charge.
