The 7th Bangalore Queer Film Festival Call for Submissions

The final schedule of films will be released in the first week of February 2016. Please note the following suggestions:

Films  
The BQFF accepts films made by directors on themes related to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex and other queer populations. Films that challenge traditional gender and sex / sexuality notions are welcome.

Genres
Please submit films of any form: Features, Shorts, Documentaries, Animation or Experimental.

Preview copies
Submit preview copies of full films online (through vimeo, youtube etc. or by sending the full film via Dropbox or similar file transfers) or by sending the DVD copies to the BQFF organizing committee’s address. Preview copies submitted for selection will not be returned. Copies of all films will be kept with the BQFF Archives.

Format of Final Submission
Final submissions are expected on high-quality DVDs only. Contact the organizers if you require more information or want to use other formats.

Subtitles
Since accents vary even among English language films, all films should preferably have subtitles in English.

Submission/mailing costs
Mailing costs for the submissions have to be borne by the director/producer/distributor. The BQFF cannot, at this juncture, support the costs of receiving copies for preview. Please contact the organizers if you are unable to bear these costs so as to arrange for alternative ways to send your films.

Screening Costs
As always the BQFF is a FREE event and no charges are levied on submissions. Additionally, only films that do not charge screening fees will be accepted.
