The East Village Queer Film Festival (EVQ) celebrates queer film in all it's glorious diversity. The festival, presented by the Wild Project in association with New York No Limits and hosted by Director Lola Rock’n’Rolla, embraces an inclusive Queer identity, featuring films that entertain, explore and promote queer-themed issues, work by and featuring LGBTQ artists, as well as work inspired by the expanded innovative and audacious downtown Queer avant garde. The festival seeks to become a positive space for building, growing and fostering the Queer film community and to serve an integral role ushering in the future of Queer film.
In addition to screenings of feature length films, shorts, webisodes and music videos, the unique “Future Cult Classics” category is included in the festival to highlight Queer B-Movies of all genres from Horror, Sci-fi, Exploitation, and more. The category will feature films by artists whose inspiration comes from the work of John Waters, Roger Corman, Wes Craven, Walter Hill, and by artists who root for the shark in JAWS.
The festival will be presenting the Golden Raspberry Award in the “Future Cult Classics” category as well as awards for Best Feature Film and Best Short Film.
