Hollywood Queer Short Film Festival is dedicated to showcasing the talent and creativity of LGBTQ+
and other artists who want to speak to our community.
We produce four programs of LGBTQ+ short films representing the best work produced this year by new and experienced filmmakers. While we are not a comedy festival, we hope our selections reflect a joy of creation -- fun, if you will -- that the filmmakers had in their creation process.

Each program also features a live cabaret selection from Los Angeles' amazing GayDD revue!

Hollywood Queer Short Film Festival is a benefits group.
Proceeds will be donated to one or more charitable organizations after the festival
