GFEST – Gaywise FESTival has announced the call for entries – open to Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGB & T) and queer artists – the festival accepts submissions in 3 main categories : Short Films, Visual Arts and Performances.
This will be fifth year for GFEST and Arts Council England has supported the ever evolving festival programme over the past 4 years. GFEST was forced to face a controversy last year when its visual arts exhibition was deemed partly unsuitable for some children’s groups by the exhibition venue in Camden last year.
GFEST is internationally recognised as high profile festival by media and other festivals. The festival is supported by celebrities like Stephen Fry, Sarah Waters and Peter Tatchell, as well as ministers and politicians from both sides of the House.
