QWOCMAP’s annual Queer Women of Color Film Festival will premiere 35 films in 3 screenings, June 14-16, 2019. Our 15th anniversary Festival Focus “Resilient Past is Vibrant Prologue,” celebrates the everlasting power of queer women of color, and gender nonbinary and transgender people of color. From a young biracial Chinese woman whose home propels her into the world, to the voice of a Mexican American boy soaring with love, from two nonbinary Coptic Egyptian and Muslim Pakistani queer friends diving into community with food, to four Black trans women strutting through love, trade, and shade, these films charge through time and revel in our ability to thrive.

All films Subtitled for the Deaf & Hard-of-Hearing. ASL interpretation provided.

QWOCMAP uses film to shatter stereotypes and bias, reveal the lived truth of inequality, and build understanding and community around art and social justice. QWOCMAP creates, exhibits, and distributes high-impact films that authentically reflect the lives of queer women of color (cisgender and transgender), and gender nonbinary and transgender people of color (of any orientation), and address the vital, intersecting social justice issues that concern our multiple communities. QWOCMAP’s vision nurtures filmmakers as artist-activist leaders for social change.
