Bengaluru is bracing up for the eighth edition of the Bangalore Queer Film Festival (BQFF), which will kick off in the city from Thursday, and will last for four days till February 28.
According to The Hindu:
The fest, commences at Max Mueller Bhavan will continue at Alliance Francaise from February 26 to 28....The fest is organised by Swabhava Trust, Good as you (GAY), We’re here and Queer (WHaQ), Pirat Dykes. Entry is free and the event is open to all.
Speaking to the Times of India, Poorva Rajaram, member of the festival's organizing committee said "The format of BQFF has always been a mix of popular, mainstream and experimental and off-beat movies. Eight years ago, we had to struggle to find filmmakers who made films on queer subjects, but today, we have artists getting in touch with us asking to screen their films....Many people are using visual media to address the subject which is good in a way."
