We live in a world which struggles to expand its definitions of identity, sexuality and gender every day. One way to ease the struggle is to allow people to get to know someone against whom their minds have formally been shut. That world’s people also battle with identity, a battle which sometimes leads to defeat. One way to help another human being identify themselves is by sharing stories with which they might identify.
If you’ve made a film, 30 minutes or under, which shows the many iterations of identity, we invite you to enter the Audience Awards LGBTQ Film Festival. Though an agenda isn’t necessary to submit, you may experience one of these barrier-breaking benefits by participating.
Filmmakers from around the world are invited to submit to the Audience Awards 2017 LGBTQ Shorts Film Festival and give over 100,000 film fans the chance to view and vote. Films chosen will also be judged by an elite panel of jurors who are experts in the impact LGBTQ shorts have in today’s film market.
