Shanghai Queer Film Festival

Shanghai Queer Film Festival

September 16, 2017

This year the first edition of the Shanghai Queer Film Festival will take place from the 16th to the 24th of September. The festival aims to promote Chinese queer filmmakers and the Chinese queer community. It will be a week of queer world cinema screenings, panel discussions, filmmaking workshops and parties.

The organisers hope this festival is a first step towards a more accepting and welcoming community in China. The programme includes a range of queer films from around the world but will focus on primarily Asian narratives and characters to improve accessibility.

"A week of culture, engagement and celebration. We dance to the beat of the screen." You can read more information about the festival at their website.
