SF Queer Fest offers an alternate platform for out-of-the-box thinkers and content creators. Unlike mainstream LGBTQ+ festivals, we don’t disqualify films based on premiere status or date of completion. We select films on merit and not based on the names attached to the project. This festival is created by filmmakers to provide opportunities to queer filmmakers who are over-looked by the mainstream festivals.

neighborhoods: the Castro in San Francisco, Le Marais in Paris and Greenwich
