QTI Coalition of Colour is proud to present our first film festival – a queer film fest focused on issues of migration and movement. The festival will have live events, panels with filmmakers, activists and scholars as well as conversations with cast and crew on Saturday and Sunday 17-18 October.
queer qandī Journeys and Destinations film fest is happy to have ‘Queer’ Asia as guest curators. ‘Queer’ Asia is a collective of researchers and activists, working to build a global platform from which to challenge dominant ideas, forms, and representations of gender and sexuality.
