Mission Statement

In this year’s festival there are tender films, heartbreaking films, and several works that are extremely provocative, maybe even, disturbing. Taken as a whole, this year's selection ties us into conversations people are having around the world via the real stars of the festival: the films. It’s about surrendering to the films, without looking for familiar names, titles, scores. It’s about creating the right context for personal, intimate films grouped together for a cinematic experience you will not get anywhere else on the planet. The 6th Annual Queens World Film Festival (QWFF) returns to the Museum of the Moving Image, the Secret Theatre and PS 69 from March 15-20, 2016.

Description

Turning 6, QWFF is set to return to the Museum of the Moving Image and other venues across Queens March 15 - 20 2016. We anticipate screening between 80 and 100 films. It is important to QWFF that every screening is a worthwhile experience for participating filmmakers and our guests so we will continue many of our signature elements: dynamic thematic programming, hosted screening events with engaging talk-backs, relevant networking opportunities and maximum access to press. We will again screen narrative films, documentaries, LGBTQ and animated films and we will program both short and feature length films. However this year we are adding a new category: Family Films. We are excited to introduce families to independent and international cinema.
