2019上海酷儿影展 短片单元开启征片 | 你镜头里的酷儿万象,我们非常期待2019SHQFF · CALL FOR SUBMISSION |QUEER SPECTRUM IN YOUR LENS



How time flies. SHQFF has been here with you for two years. As a queer cinema platform, each year we crossed boundaries near and far to bring back cutting-edge queer images for a growing size of filmmakers and audiences. We gathered to watch films and share life stories in the light and shadows of our rainbow banner. This is why we are here, for each and every one of you. 

SHQFF Shorts, the short film division has always been a defining element of our festival. In the past two years, we have received over 1000 submissions from all over the world, and our excellent finalists have received enthusiastic audience responses at the festival. As SHQFF returns to the stage, we now kick off the 2019 open call for SHQFF Shorts submissions.




Following last year’s tradition, this year you may submit your short film to either one of the two short film categories: Asian Short Film Competition and World Short Film Screening. It is our hope to offer a wider stage for Asian queers on screen while bringing more quality films to our local audience.

If your LGBTQIA story is set in Asia or features characters with Asian backgrounds, please submit to Asian Short Film Competition. If your film is about LGBTQIA experiences but not Asia-themed, please submit your entry to World Short Film Screening. 

We look forward to seeing the queer spectrum in your camera.


You can submit your film through our FilmFreeway account at:


or our official website at
