Days to qFLIX Philadelphia 2021 | Sept. 26 - Oct. 3
Our first festival was in 2014, was 5-days long and screened 35 films, we now produce 4 festivals, with 85 days of programming, and over 300 new and independent LGBTQ+ films from around the world.
All this success has been accomplished by an all-volunteer production team, who have embraced qFLIX’s mission as their own.
As a mission driven family of LGBTQ+ film festivals, we believe that our stories are the soul of our community and are best expressed in the arts. As such, these stories must be shared far and wide. Our stories gathered from around the world, educate, empower, entertain, and inspire a people to move further towards equality, and into a world that is not simply diverse and inclusive, but one that creates a sense of belonging for all LGBTQ+ people.
For the launch of the qFLIX Virtual Theater our artistic team selected SLAY THE DRAGON, directed by Chris Durrance & Barak Goodman, and released in 2020 (USA). In SLAY THE DRAGON we see how gerrymandering influences elections and sways outcomes-gerrymandering has...

“Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge” has easily been called the “gayest horror film ever” and has become a queer horror cult classic. Well get ready Philadelphia because for the 35th anniversary of “Freddy’s Revenge” we’re bringing Mark Patton, who played Jesse Walsh, to qFLIX Philadelphia 2020, March 22-29, on Thursday, March 26, 7:15 PM, at the Susanne Roberts Theatre, to explain it all.

This hammy, VERY fleshy comedy is chock full of wet skin, immaculately white toweling and GORGEOUS washboard abdominals. Sounds like a scene out of heaven, right? What gay man doesn’t covet a night in the steam and a terrific physique to match up with it? What’s going to happen though, when a disgraced makeup executive (played with vigor by the iconic Traci Lords) realizes that she covets TOTAL control of this place and the very abled bodies that go hand in hand with it? “Steam Room Stories: The Movie” is a terrific tale and a very successful follow-up to the energetic YouTube series first released in 2010. Laugh, cry, hope not to get towel whipped. Do keep in mind there’s a reason why the series has received more than 53 million views, after all!
Let's face it: in an ambiguous political climate and country where we never know what or who is going to rock the boat next, especially with a real-life Baby Huey continuously bringing havoc to the White House, a little public advocacy goes a long, long way--...
