International Queer & Migrant Short Film Program
International Queer & Migrant Film Festival (IQMF) was founded in 2015 in Amsterdam and is a festival for queer & migrant related films as well as a multi-disciplinary community space with art exhibitions, workshops, debates, and more. Our collaboration with them has resulted in a program highlighting queer and migrant stories curated by IQMF themselves.
