The Queer Women of Color Film Festival is held every year in June in San Francisco and features films that address the vital social justice issues that concern women of color and our communities, authentically reflect our life stories, and build community through art and activism. Enjoy the creativity of emerging media atrists who are Asian/Pacific Islander, Black/African American, Chicana/Latina, Native American and Mixed-Race lesbians, bisexual, queer and questioning women in the Bay Area.
Now in its sixth year, the festival started in June 2003 in one room at the San Francisco's LGBT Center with a free screening that drew standing-room-only crowds. In 2005, the packed annual screenings expanded into the 1st Annual Queer Women of Color Film Festival. Now held in the full-sized Brava Theatre- the festival is still free, thanks to generous grants, donors and partners and includes free refreshments provided by local restaurants and businesses and an exciting featured panel (with a sliding-scale admission) or performance each year.
