Kansai Queer Film Festival

Kansai Queer Film Festival (KQFF) is the biggest annual film festival in Kansai region that celebrates and shows various films that focus on diverse gender and sexuality issues around the world. What distinguishes KQFF is its broad concern on themes and problems of LGBT and the other sexual minorities in the society. KQFF was first held in 2005 and we are proud that we will be able to celebrate 7th KQFF this year. Every year, we screen films from all around the world and show selected ones with original Japanese subtitles.


We have successfully decided also this year to hold the festival in a couple of places. Please see below:

  • 【Osaka】HEP HALL - September 15 (Sat) 16 (Sun) 17 (Mon/Hopday)

  • 【Kyoto】Kyoto University Seibu Kodo - 10/12 (Fri) 13 (Sat) 14 (Sun)
