The 5th annual Queer Women of Color Film Festival showcases feisty and fantastic voyages, from dyke couples navigating desire to the riveting routes of sex toys, you’ll be spellbound to saunter through your own saucy sojourns.

Opening Night, Friday June 12, features our Festival Focus on Queer Women of Color &
Immigration, where transplanted family dreams, delightful disco-balls and uprooted lovers
traverse intimate contours in MULTIPLE BORDERS.

Saturday June 13, we present a Community Convening bringing together immigrant, people
of color, LGBTQ and arts organizations to reframe contentious debates about queer
immigration. Our Saturday night Centerpiece Screening presents reggaetonic migrating fingers,
quests for identity, and campy sci-fi adventures in QUEERLY IRREVERENT.

Sunday June 14, our afternoon screening presents alluring accidental encounters,
joyous deliveries and deceptive wanderlust that collide in CRAZYSEXYLIFE.

Sunday Closing Night presents filmmakers tracing their creative journeys, dream-stirring
poetry and a hip-hop trio’s trailblazing flight in ARTISTIC JUSTICE.
