“For 23 years, QWOCMAP has nurtured filmmaker-activists who use the power of art as cultural resistance, resilience, reclamation and renewal. As a young lesbian artist-activist living in Singapore, Madeleine Lim needed a place like QWOCMAP. Persecuted for her activism, Madeleine fled home and landed in the Bay Area, quickly making a name for herself as an unapologetic and bold filmmaker. Now, QWOCMAP provides a safe haven for the next generation of filmmakers like Madeleine — women who want to make their communities visible and vocal using the most powerful art form in the world.”
