Leeds Queer Film Festival 2020 Postponed

2nd August 2020 

Dear LQFF community,


When we made the decision to postpone our 2020 festival back in March, of course no one knew what the next several months would bring. We had hoped we would be able to put on our full event in October of this year, but that is looking unrealistic. We aim to make our events as friendly, affordable, accessible and inclusive as we can. And unfortunately we can’t deliver that right now, under the current circumstances.

We truly hope to put on our five-day in-person festival of queer films, queer workshops, queer food and queer FUN in 2021, but we will have to wait and see how everything plays out. We are not planning any specific date for now.

In recent weeks we have put on two online film events, and have been thrilled at their success. We are looking at plans for more of these in the future. As always, please keep an eye on our socials or subscribe to our newsletter to find out what we’re up to!

So we’ll see you in person a bit later than we hoped, but in the meantime we’ll see what we can do virtually. Let’s keep taking care of ourselves, and each other.

The LQFF organising team
