Our mission at IQFAF is to create a space where queer filmmakers and artists can not only showcase their work but also contribute to a global dialogue that promotes inclusivity, understanding, and social awareness. Through the lens of film and art, we strive to shed light on diverse experiences within the LGBTQ+ community and champion the importance of representation.
IQFAF unfolds in five dynamic quarters, incorporating four online events and culminating in a physical festival hosted in the vibrant city of Las Vegas, Nevada. The online events, accessible to all free of charge, feature screenings, insightful interviews, and live panels with prominent artists, musicians, and filmmakers. Submissions for these events are welcomed through the FilmFreeway platform.
