The FREE virtual Queer Women of Color Film Festival will premiere 19 films in 3 screenings, June 11-13, 2021. The 17th anniversary Festival Focus “Molten Connections” forges new relationships, awakens steadfast bonds of diaspora, and sparks a metamorphosis of love that withstands time. From Chumash ancestors who mapped the stars, to two older queer Latinas rekindling a geode of love, to QTBIPOC battling gentrification and displacement, these films resonate across generations and lay the cornerstone for change. All films are Subtitled for the Deaf & Hard-of-Hearing, and ASL Interpretation and CART/live open captions will be provided for live, interactive filmmaker Q&As.

QWOCMAP’s vision nurtures filmmakers as artist-activist leaders for social change.
