Queer Kampala International Film Festival (QKIFF), is the first and only LGBTQ Film Festival in Uganda and the only gay film festival organized in a country where homosexuality is illegal. QUEERKIFF offers a powerful platform to promote and progress LGBTIQ rights through film advocacy in homophobic Uganda.

For the first time in homophobic Uganda, an International film festival celebrating and reinforcing the right to be LGBTQI was held. Against all odds, the creative Queer KIFF team laid strategies to beat the stern security and anti homo communities. The inaugural Queer Kampala International Film Festival was held 9th – 11th, December 2016 at different venues in the country’s capital Kampala.

Measures included security screening of attendees, keeping the venues secret and mobile daily. The attendants had to go to a different venue in the morning and afternoon. Venues were announced within hours to the event. Encouragingly, the LGBTIQ community, supporters and sympathizers hung in there and religiously followed us to the different venues attracting a turn up of more than 800 visitors with in a space of three days.
We are excited to announce the second edition scheduled for the 8th – 10th, December 2017. We are already accepting film submissions and be sure it will happen as our think tank is laying strategies to mitigate associated risks.

Together, we can end victimization of the LGBTQI community using social justice film-making, a tested and proven effective tool in changing hearts, minds, and laws!!

Project Goal

-Pushing for Legal Reforms through expanding the network of LGBTIQ advocates, supporters and activists who can lobby the relevant authorities and stakeholders particularly politicians who are attracted by numbers.

-Preventing Discrimination of the LGBTIQ Community through creating awareness to the general populace about the LGBTIQ Community. This is done with an aim of changing perceptions and attitudes of the general populace thus reducing stigma and discrimination against the LGBTIQ community.

-Promoting Production of Quality LGBTIQ Films by providing spaces where their films can be exhibited as well as recognizing and awarding the brave film makers who dare to tell the suppressed LGBTIQ stories.

To learn about Queerkiff read this illuminating interview about setting up a queer film festival in a country where homosexuality is illegal. The inaugural Queer Kampala International Film Festival came to Uganda last December. (via VICE News) https://news.vice.com/story/a-queer-film-festival-comes-to-uganda-where-homosexuality-is-illegal

The Artemis Women in Action Film Festival is the world’s only film festival focused exclusively on female action and empowerment heroes. Our 4th edition will occur in March 2018.

We celebrate powerful women taking action on the silver screen. From female action heroes and female film directors to female activists and the men who support them, we shine a spotlight on females in narrative and documentary films who are fearless, fierce and revolutionary. We believe that film has both the power to entertain and to awaken – to awaken people’s awareness of the dynamic and powerful roles of women in our society. We aim to kick ass and open minds.

In 2017, the festival honored Tom Cruise, Melissa McCarthy, Nichelle Nichols, Cynthia Rothrock, Gina Carano, Ingrid Bolsø Berdal, and stunt performers Andy Armstrong, Jennifer Caputo, Tammie Baird and Luci Romberg. Many of them attended our red carpet gala. Our 2016 honoree Paul Feig (Bridesmaids, Spy, Ghostbusters) presented the 2017 edition. Most of them were in attendance.

Our filmmakers and honorees have gone on to wonderful achievements. Stuntwoman Maja Aro returned to the festival with her film Hoods, which won Best Short Drama. Director Howard J. Ford ("Never Let Go", winner of Best Director, Best Film, and Best Actress in 2016) will release Never Let Go on DVD this summer. 2016 Best Documentary winner, SMART directed by Justin Zimmerman, found distribution. 2016 Alum David Ennocenti will begin production in early 2018 on a feature.

The online blog Ms. In The Biz wrote several articles about the 2016 festival: http://msinthebiz.com/2016/05/03/warrior-women-artemis-women-in-action-film-festival/
http://msinthebiz.com/2016/05/02/unsung-heroines-get-a-voice-at-artemis/)

Artemis’ definition of "women in action" includes "women who take action"-- the activists, political leaders and everyday women who affect change in the world around them. In addition to films featuring a female lead or co-lead in a physically active role, submissions now include films where women are the agents of change in the world around.

We offer festival passes good for the entire weekend to filmmakers of all films selected to screen and all screenwriters selected as finalists. This pass includes admission to our red carpet gala which features female action stars and legends of the film industry, and access to all festival events, including our panels. Our 2017 edition included a stunt panel featuring our 2017 stunt honorees, panels on Warrior Women, Virtual Reality, and Film Finance, and a Q & A with the L.A. Sparks.

We present Artemis Awards for Audience Choice, Best Film, Best Director, Best Documentary, Best Actress, Best Actor, Best Fight Scene, Best Action Sequence, Best Screenplay, as well as others. The top three winners of the Screenplay Competition receive an InkTip Script Listing so that producers and reps can find you. Producers have made more than 315 films from scripts and writers they found through InkTip.

The festival takes place in the film capital of the world, Los Angeles, California.
