Cinema St. Louis presents the 14th Annual QFest – a St. Louis-based LGBTQ film festival that includes 24 films (14 shorts, six narrative features, and four documentary features). The participating filmmakers represent a wide variety of voices in contemporary queer world cinema. According to a spokesperson for the event, “the mission of the film festival is to use the art of contemporary gay cinema to spotlight the lives of LGBTQ people and to celebrate queer culture.”

QFest highlights include hosting the St. Louis premiere of new works by international filmmakers Agnieszka Holland (Charlatan) and François Ozon (Summer of 85), as well as this year’s Q Classic – the 50th anniversary of the 1971 film Pink Narcissus.

The films included in the event are as follows:
