Queens World Film Festival: The Films

Congratulations to the 198 films from 33 nations that will be screening with us June 23 – July 3, 2021 across the Borough of Queens! Queens World 11 is a hybrid event. The entire festival will stream live on Film Festival Flix and 133 films will also have live screenings in 5 venues (link to venue page) that are ready to welcome the world back to Queens. Both schedules should be live by June 5.

Queens World is excited to report that while 29% of the submissions were by women, 42% of the selected films are by female filmmakers and 50% of the final screening schedule are films by BIPOC. We thank the screening committee for curating a collection of stories that will help us bring more hope into the world.

The 42 Features will screen alone and 156 short films are grouped into themed blocs with provocative names like ‘Therapy This!’, ‘Dirty Dogma’, ‘Angst R Us!’, and ‘People and Places’, ‘Tales of Connectedness’ and ‘Coloring Outside the Lines’. There is something for everyone.

We look forward to sharing these incredible films with you June 23 – July 3, 2021.
