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 Film Festival will run 24Th March – 2nd April 2017 @ the CCA.
We provide an international platform for film and art created by queer/LGBTIQA+ people of colour.
We are a groundbreaking 10 day festival with a unique programming focus, screening films either
made by Queer/LGBTIQA+ people of colour on any subject
films made by directors of any identity featuring/documenting LGBTIQA+ people of colour.
We are currently open for submissions – deadline: Midnight, October 31st 2016
Due to the high quality of GLITCH programming immediately after our first year we toured selected shorts programmes internationally including to AKS Copenhagen, Germany’s oldest queer film festival Hamburg LSF Filmtage 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 committed to accessibility in the fullest sense of the word. Entry is free to all events. All films are fully subtitled & all live events have BSL for deaf audience members.
