Annoucement of QFFF 2019
Queer Feminist Film Festival 2019
Thu, 02 May 2019 - 12:15

Queer Feminist Film Festival (QFFF) is making a comeback to Bertha Movie House in Khayelitsha, Cape
Town, on the 24th and 25th of May 2019! Last year’s event was a huge success and, it only made sense
to make do it again.
QFFF is a feminist film festival for the LGBTQIA+ community to come together in celebration of queer
organizing, our experiences and sharing knowledge. And, it's the first of its kind locally!
Through the film festival, we’re working towards engaging and countering the disconnect between
queer and/ or feminist activists, creatives and the broader community. We're here to bring the queer
and/ or feminist community together!
