Welcome to GLITCH 2017! 

 We are a glitch in the system

Our lives deny the lies

Our complexity is dissent

We fight for love


GLITCH is a unique and international Film Festival. We are Europe’s first 10 day QTIPoC Film Festival.

We screen films either

Made by queer/trans/intersex people of colour on any subject


Films made by directors of any identity featuring/documenting QTIPoCs.

We provide an international platform for QTIPoC Film and Art.

Due to the high quality of GLITCH programming immediately after our first year we toured selected shorts programmes to AKS in Copenhagen, Hamburg LSF Filmtage , Wotever London and MIX NYC. In addition our festival director, Nosheen Khwaja, was invited to sit on the juries of Hamburg LSF in 2015 and the 30th Teddy Awards at the Berlinale in 2016.

We are currently running bi-annually. The next GLITCH dates are 24th March -2nd April 2017, and our Summer/Autumn Season starts in May 2016.
