Our Mission

LESBIAN FILMMAKERS PUT THIS FESTIVAL AT THE TOP OF YOUR LIST

"Lesbian filmmakers put this festival at the top of your list, and if you are accepted make sure you attend! It is an extremely well run festival and we could not have asked for more. We really appreciated the warm and open atmosphere. In addition to the films, the parties and panels were interesting and lots of fun. The facilities where the events were held were great. It is a great festival to interact with other filmmakers and the audience."​
