Who We Are

About Us:

qFLIX Philadelphia is a production of qFLIX USA, Inc. Founded in 2014, qFLIX is rooted in 25 years of LGBTQ+ film festival leadership. We believe that experiencing our voices, stories and visions on film from around the world, from birth to death, from the loved to the loveless, from youth to maturity, lifts us forward as individuals and as a community. Film as an international language allows us to foster, support, and give access to independent filmmakers and to encourage and nurture youth in the art of filmmaking. Queer film inspires the imagination and encourages the journey of discovery and acceptance by both the ever-growing region’s LGBTQ+ and the mainstream communities.

qFLIX USA, Inc. is register 501 (c)(3) Nonprofit Corporation.  Your donations are tax deductible!
