16th Annual San Francisco International
Queer Women of Color Film Festival

This year, QWOCMAP will premiere 31 brand new films in 3 screenings during the first-time-ever online livestream of our entire Queer Women of Color Film Festival, June 12-14, 2020. Our 16th Anniversary Festival Focus “SafeSpace/NoPlace: LBTQ People of Color,” expands discussions about the meaning of safety for LBTQ+ people of color, both outside on the streets and inside homes typically thought of as safe. All films are Subtitled for the Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing, and the live introductory remarks and interactive filmmaker Q&As will be entirely live captioned.


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.
