A Black drag queen with dark brown skin and a long blonde wig, singing with her arms wide open in the middle of Market Street in San Francisco. Behind her are skyscrapers, buildings, and streetlights. On the left is the QWOCMAP 20th anniversary logo and white text that reads FREE! 17th annual Queer Women of Color Film Festival. On the right is black and red text that reads Online Live Stream! June 11, 12, 13, 2021. In the bottom right are the accessibility lofos for ASL and open captions.

17th Annual Queer Women of Color Film Festival

QWOCMAP will premiere 19 films in 3 screenings during our FREE virtual Queer Women of Color Film Festival, June 11-13, 2021. The 17th anniversary Festival Focus “Molten Connections” forges new relationships, awakens steadfast bonds of diaspora, and sparks a metamorphosis of love that withstands time. From Chumash ancestors who mapped the stars, to two older queer Latinas rekindling a geode of love, to queer and transgender people of color battling gentrification and displacement, these films resonate across generations and lay the cornerstone for change. All films are Subtitled for the Deaf & Hard-of-Hearing, and ASL Interpretation and CART/live open captions will be provided for live, interactive Filmmaker Q&As.


QWOCMAP 2019 Film Festival

I felt a part of the community of queer women, of filmmakers or film lovers although I don’t identify with any of these labels. That to me is important.

At our annual San Francisco International Queer Women of Color Film Festival, we screen films created through our programs, in addition to films by independent filmmakers from around the world. Each year, we play to a full house. It’s unlike any other film screening you’ve been to. It’s a theatre full of friends and family who are gathering to not only watch a film together, but to experience something new, to think differently, build community, and to participate in deep, lasting social change.
