Formally: OUT Web Fest
QueerX is a one-of-a-kind festival celebrating the world of brilliant digital content, created by and for the global queer community. QueerX brings you to the intersection of music, film and industry. Inclusive of all identities, the festival pushes boundaries the same way our community does by fostering connection and empowering queer voices.
Originally founded as Out Web Fest in 2016, QueerX breaks the mold of other festivals by giving prominence to honest and unfiltered digital short-form storytelling . Beyond screenings, this unique festival also invites cutting edge musicians to showcase their sound through live performances including panels with top industry experts, providing ample opportunity to meet future collaborators and build professional relationships. QueerX aims to create a space where artists, industry professionals and enthusiasts alike can connect while exploring the future of queer entertainment.
QueerX will be held June 5th - June 7th in West Hollywood, California. The festival kicks off Friday night with an Exclusive Industry Party on the Sunset Strip and continues Saturday and Sunday at the London Hotel West Hollywood with screenings and panels. QueerX concludes with the star-studded Visibility Awards and closing night party.
Throughout the weekend, our annual Powerhouse Industry Pitchfest gives creators the rare opportunity to pitch projects one-on-one to top producers and production companies.
This year QueerX is happy to announce an extraordinary International Audience Award prizes: one ticket for travel, accommodations and entry into Rio Web Fest in beautiful Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
