Wotever DIY Film Festival 2015 – Submissions Now Open!

Are you, or would you like to be, a queer film-maker? Do you have a story to tell or know someone who does? Then read on…

We are thrilled to announce that we are now accepting submissions for the fifth Wotever DIY Film Festival 2015 . Our annual celebration of queer lo-fi filmmaking will once again feature films, discussions, workshops and more at the beautiful Cinema Museum in London.

Deadline for submissions: 31st May 2015

Festival dates: 21st – 23rd August 2015

Venue: The Cinema Museum, Kennington, London UK (fully wheelchair accessible)

Last year’s WDFF was a huge hit!

We are looking for short films of up to 30 minutes on a queer theme. However, we will prioritise films 15 minutes and under. Feature length films will be considered although please be aware we have very limited space for these. All films need to be DIY or independent films of any genre on a queer theme. We have a particular interest in films about queer people and queer culture reclaiming space. Other than that, our only criteria is that they must be in keeping with our Wotever ethos and as such we will not consider submissions that are racist, misogynist, transphobic, homophobic, ableist, sizeist, feature religious intolerance or are in any way prejudiced or exclusionary towards a particular group or identity. We are always trying to improve accessibility at Wotever DIY Film Festival and with that we assert that all filmmakers selected for the festival must work to commit to subtitling their films.

We welcome films that push the boundaries of queer thinking and ideology, are thought-provoking and progressive. Saying that, we also appreciate a nice queer-meets-queer love story, slap stick comedy or music video we can dance to.

This is a film festival by and for the queer community, and we would especially love to see submissions from people who may feel under-represented in the queer community, such as QTIPOC, trans and disabled groups as well as people with refugee status. With this in mind please share this with your friends, lovers and family and get the word out to as many corners of our wonderful queer community as possible.

DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS: 31ST MAY 2015

***SUBMISSION DEADLINE – 4TH JULY 2014***

As someone who describes the cinema as “my church”, I admit I got a little over-excited when I was asked to be involved with this year’s Wotever DIY Film Festival. It’s by and for queers. It’s independent. It’s do-it-yourself fantastic. And it’s going to take place in some of the most inspirational cinemas in London. Weeee!

So grab anything with a lens and get shooting. Here’s what you need to know:

This is the fourth Wotever Film Festival and the biggest one yet, with films, discussions and more over the August bank holiday in multiple venues, and we want to screen your creations!

We are looking for shorts (3-15mins) and mid-length films (15 – 30 mins). We will consider some feature-length films although please be aware we have very limited space for these. All films need to be DIY or independent films of any genre on a Queer theme. We have a particular interest in films about queer people and queer culture reclaiming space. Other than that, our only criteria is that they must be in keeping with our Wotever ethos and as such will not consider submissions that are racist, trans*/homophobic, religiously intolerant, ableist, sizeist or in any way prejudiced or exclusionary towards a particular group or identity.

We welcome films that push the boundaries of queer thinking and ideology, are thought-provoking and progressive. Saying that, we also appreciate a nice queer-meets-queer love story, slap stick comedy or music video we can dance to.

This a film festival by and for the queer community, and we especially would love to see submissions from people who may feel under-represented in the queer community, such as people from QTIPOC, trans and disabled groups as well as people with refugee status.
