Queer film fest: space for films and dialogue1 min readReading Time: < 1 minute
What started as a small attempt to screen films on Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) themes, has grown into a full-fledged film festival with a space for performance, discussion and dialogue on LGBT themes.
The Bangalore Queer Film Festival (BQFF) enters its third year this February, and brings to audiences films from across the world: 53 films from 14 countries to be exact.
With nine full-length features, 28 short films, four experimental films, eight short documentaries and five full-length documentaries, BQFF 2011 is spread over three days, between February 25 and 27, at the Alliance Francaise, Bangalore.
The festival is a mix of critically acclaimed films, amateur efforts and experimental work that attempts to understand the mental, physical and emotional lives of those who stand outside the sexual norm.
