QFilms BAN

The LGBTQ Center has announced that it is now seeking submissions of both features and shorts for this year’s upcoming QFilm Festival.

Submissions, accepted through June 8, could be a part of the festival itself when it opens its doors at the Art Theatre on September 12. Submissions are being taken through via DVD/Blu-Ray copies or online screeners. A nominal fee, which will be donated to The Center’s operations, is attached to each submission.

For over two decades, QFilms has become a Long Beach cultural staple, with last year garnering over a thousand attendees and lifting the festival’s prominence with more U.S. and west coast premieres of LGBT films.

All net proceeds from the festival benefit The LGBTQ Center of Long Beach. Festival sponsors and underwriters are critical to the festival’s success and are currently being sought. Please contact Christina D. Rios Bennett at 562-889-2826 or [email protected] for information about sponsorship opportunities. For more information on the Art Theatre, please visit
