Bangalore Queer Film Festival


Years running: 20 (since 2003)

Bangalore Queer Film Festival

International Queer Film Festival.


BQFF is an annual event that carefully selects queer films from all over the world and brings them to an ever-growing Bangalore audience. The festival will serve as a space for LGBT concerns to be voiced through the medium of moving images as well as an important platform for screening new Indian and South Indian movies. More than just a film festival, we are a hub of queer arts and culture with an art exhibitions, photo exhibitions and performances.

In the last five years, BQFF has grown exponentially—we are now an entrenched fixture in Bangalore’s yearly cultural calendar. Our films try to push boundaries of understanding and we rigourously explore the mental, emotional and physical lives of those who stand outside the sexual norm. At BQFF, we are firmly interested in both straightforward LGBT films and wildly queer and radical films.


  • We accept films, made in 2018 and after, with themes related to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex and other queer populations. Films that challenge traditional gender and sex / sexuality notions are welcome.
