QWFF celebrates the independent filmmaking spirit by encouraging the novice and the student filmmaker, featuring filmmakers who take chances to bring us challenging stories and by providing screening opportunities for that overlooked, yet gem of a film.
The 3rd Annual Queens World Film Festival (QWFF) creates a robust and exciting program aimed at launching careers and thrilling audiences. Always putting the filmmaker first, QWFF provides top-notch screening experiences at unique venues, and groups films thematically to maximize marketing and press opportunities. The festival hosts additional screenings for its festival films throughout the calendar year, providing talented artists with plenty of opportunities to make their voices heard.
Last year’s opening night gala, hosted at the renowned Museum of the Moving Image, unveiled five world premieres, three New York premieres, and welcomed a sold-out crowd. Taking place in one of the most dynamic boroughs of New York City, itself one of the most diverse communities in the world, QWFF is more than a great place to tell and enjoy cinematic stories; it’s an ideal environment in which to hatch your next great idea. Submit your work to the Queens World Film Festival today and discover the incredible community, support, and exposure opportunities for yourself!
