Wotever DIY Film Festival: Queer Filmmaking & Culture

03/09/2016 @ 1:00 pm - 11:00 pm

Wotever DIY Film Festival 2016 takes place on 3-4 September 2016.

Set up in 2012, our mission is to showcase the best DIY, low and no budget film from the LGBTQIA+ community.

The festival is part of Wotever World, a queer arts, performance and activism collective based in London. A regular programme of events take place at Bar Wotever, held weekly at the Royal Vauxhall Tavern.

Since our launch in 2012, the festival has grown from a one-evening event to a year long programme of screenings and workshops, culminating in a 2 day festival. 2014 and 2015 saw us taking up residence in the beautiful Cinema Museum, while 2016’s event will be held between the 3-4 September at DIY Space for London.

We screen the best (and cheapest) film from queer film makers, professionals and enthusiastic amateurs and show that you don’t need a gazillion quid to make a cracking film. We’re also constantly working towards greater inclusivity and accessibility and believe that film making and viewing should be for everyone, regardless of your budget.

Calling all filmmakers, film lovers, industry people and cinequeers!

This is an opportunity to meet and mingle with fellow film makers and enthusiasts. Perhaps you’re looking for people to star in your next queer film creation? Maybe you want to star in someone else’s queer film! Maybe you’re looking for people with technical know-how and other crew members, or perhaps you simply want to chew the fat with other queer cinema lovers and get inspired.

Whether you’ve made a film, are interested in making a film, are in the industry or would like to meet people who are, this is a great opportunity to come along and network.

Free drinks, snacks and tunes will be provided.

(Places for this event are limited so please let us know if you can’t attend)
