Open Space, Birds of a Feather, The Queer Chronicle and a group of very enthusiastic volunteers worked tirelessly for 3 months to create Pune’s first queer film festival, The Q Fest’10. The festival was attended by over 400 people on both days.
Given the success of last year’s festival Q Fest’11 is widening its range to include not only films from Europe and South East Asia, but is also looking at contemporary writers from within the sub-continent, poets, photographers and film makers.
This year’s theme is Being Seen Being Heard, understanding the LGBT community in public spaces, how we engage with social change and development, how we as part of a community can contribute to that change, and how the ripple effects of that change can alter much of how we see ourselves.
