QFest St. Louis uses the art of contemporary gay cinema to spotlight the lives of LGBTQ people and to celebrate queer culture. The event will excite, entertain, and enlighten audiences of all identities.

Submissions are now open! Deadline: April 30, 2020

PLEASE NOTE: Because of the ongoing world health crisis, we are working to move the festival to a time in the summer — in late June or July — instead of the original dates in mid-May. We hope to have new dates available soon. The original entry deadline of March 22 has been changed to April 30. We encourage you to still submit your projects for consideration, and our staff will continue to evaluate submitted films.
