Bristol Pride 2021

Call Out: South West Queer Short Films

Queer Vision Film Festival is back and we want your films.

Curated by Bristol Pride Queer Vision presents a diverse programme of LGBT+ films from around the globe, including independently-made feature, animation and award-winning short films. Our focus is on widening engagement, increasing audience viewing and screening opportunities of and for LGBT+ content films and filmmakers. 


What are we looking for?

We’re looking for films made by SW filmmakers to be shown at Queer Vision Film Festival 2021

All short film (39 mins or less) entries should be by, for, about or of significant interest to gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, non-binary or intersex audiences, and must have been completed within 5 years prior to the submission deadline, that is they must have been completed since 2016.

To be eligible to make our shortlist of films to be screened you should be permanently based in one of these South West counties: Bath & NE Somerset, Bournemouth, Bristol, Cornwall, Devon, Dorset, Gloucestershire, Hampshire, Isles of Scilly, Isle of Wight, North Somerset, Plymouth, Poole, Portsmouth, Southampton, Somerset, South Gloucestershire, Swindon, Torbay or Wiltshire.

When is it?

Queer Vision Film Festival screenings will run during Bristol Pride Festival from 3rd – 16th July 2021. Due to the ongoing situation, we are closely following the regulations and government guidelines.

We are still in the planning stage of what could be possible this year, including a hybrid event where the film festival will take place in a venue and online, the format will be confirmed at a later date.
