19th annual Queer Women of Color Film Festival

QWOCMAP presents the FREE 19th annual International Queer Women of Color Film Festival June 9-11, 2023 in San Francisco.

From the lush sageness of memory, movement, and Indigenous traditions of environmental stewardship, to the transformation of grief, and the mycorrhizal relationships between love, collective care, and disability justice, the Festival Focus “Forever Rooted” liberates spores of sovereignty and survivance.

All films are Subtitled for Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing and Audio Described for the Blind and Low Vision, and ASL interpretation will be provided along with many other forms of accessibility.

Check out all the details on our Film Festival website.


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 International Queer Women of Color Film Festival in San Francisco, 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.
