0 453

The Quezon City government is bringing back the Quezon City International Pink Film Festival (QCIPFF) after a three-year hiatus to celebrate diversity and the LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transsexual, queer) community.

For 2018, the festival will have the theme “KKEPS,” which stands for kalusugan (health), karapatang pantao (human rights), edukasyon (education), pangkabuhayan (livelihood), and sekswalidad (sexuality).

The revival of the QCIPFF coincides with the 79th anniversary of Quezon City’s founding and the celebration of the centennial of Philippine cinema.

The film fest is open to all Filipino queer feature films and short films. The entries must depict the lives of Filipino LGBTQ+.

The total running time for short films must be 20 minutes or shorter, while feature films must be 2 hours long or less.

Only fims produced from 2014 up to the present will be accepted.

Deadline for submission is on August 31, 11:59 p.m.
