CINEMA: Bangalore Queer Film Festival

All day | 27th of February – 1st of March | Alliance Française auditorium / Goethe Institut

Bangalore has hosted film festivals on themes related to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT or Queer) communities since 2003. BQFF is an annual event that carefully selects queer films from all over the world and brings them to an ever-growing Bangalore audience. The festival will serve as a space for LGBT concerns to be voiced through the medium of moving images as well as an important platform for screening new Indian and South Indian movies. More than just a film festival, we are a hub of queer arts and culture with an art exhibitions, photo exhibitions and performances. In the last five years, BQFF has grown exponentially—we are now an entrenched fixture in Bangalore’s yearly cultural calendar. Our films try to push boundaries of understanding and we rigourously explore the mental, emotional and physical lives of those who stand outside the sexual norm. At BQFF, we are firmly interested in both straightforward LGBT films and wildly queer and radical films.

BQFF 2015 is organised by Good As You (GAY)Swabhava Trust, We’re Here and Queer (WHAQ!) and Pirat Dykes. Festival partners 2015: Institut FrançaisAlliance française and Goethe Insitut
