IconCall for queer film submissions

The third annual Wotever Queer Film Festival is taking place on 27 August 2013 in London, and submissions for short films are being accepted until 7 August.

Submissions should be short films (3-20 mins) on any genre on a Queer theme.

“We welcome films that push the boundaries of queer thinking and ideology, are thought-provoking and progressive,” says Theresa Heath, Wotever Film Programmer. “Saying that, we also appreciate a nice queer-meets-queer love story, slap stick comedy or music video we can dance to.

“We’ve been delighted with the diversity of the films we’ve shown over the last year and would like to continue to encourage queers of all backgrounds, nationalities, origins, identities and abilities to submit work.

“However, we know we can always do better and so if you feel that you have been under-represented thus far, send us your film and we will show it; send us your suggestions and we will listen. Alternatively, share this with your friends, lovers and family and let’s get the word out to as many corners of our wonderful queer community as possible.”

For submissions, questions, suggestions or queries contact Theresa at woteverfilm@gmail.com.

Wotever are also holding a film night fundraiser on 16th July 2013 to raise money for Jake Graf, a queer independent film maker and director of X-Why, which showed at the LLGFF.

His new film. Brace, is being directed by Emmerdale star and LGBT campaigner Alicya Eyo. It will highlight the ever-increasing issue of homophobia and gang violence in British culture and is already being hotly anticipated.
