QWOCMAP’s 14th annual Queer Women of Color Film Festival will premiere 21 films in 3 screenings, June 8-10, 2018. Feel the thunder of the “Indigenous Futures” Festival Focus as it charges body, mind, and spirit with a keen lightning strike of power, the resonant rumble of decolonization, and a glorious reservoir of indigenous brilliance. From hip hop Native warrior women too feral for the patriarchy to the smoldering romance of two elderly Latina lesbians so hot that it incinerates prejudice, these films are a barometer for our revolutionary tomorrow. All films are Subtitled for the Deaf & Hard-of-Hearing and ASL interpretation will be provided along with many other forms of disability access.

These films promise to fill the atmosphere with sparks. In the queer Asian diaspora, the flick of a tongue against flesh sparks a storm of desire and intimacy, the prevailing heat of a romance between elderly Latina lesbians is so hot that it incinerates prejudice, kinky Black lovers come together with an audible crack, and with luminous intensity a queer Latinx couple open into a new love.
