Description

QUEER KAMPALA INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL (QKIFF) is the first queer film festival to be held in Uganda. QKIFF celebrates the diversity of the gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and two-spirited communities through quality cinema. This inaugural year, the festival will span 3 days in Sept drawing crowds from across the region with film premieres, artist talks, panel discussions and parties that focus squarely on queer-themed films and videos from Uganda and around the world. Part of QKFF’s mission is to encourage the professional development of East African queer film and video artists and support for their work.
During the festival there will be a 2 day workshop for local filmmakers who cover topics such as producing and distributing LGBT-related works, and how to generate LGBT content that will appeal to Lgbti community in East Africa.
