Are you provocative? Or do you prefer the charm of subtle film seduction? And above all, are you a filmmaker passionate about queer topics? Become part of Mezipatra – the largest queer film festivals in Central and Eastern Europe. Submit your work for the 20th edition of the festival, be it a feature film, short film, or a documentary. Join Mezipatra and let our international audiences see the queer world through your eyes!

MEZIPATRA QFF is the largest queer film festival in the post-communist space. Every year, we introduce around a hundred Czech and foreign films centered around LGBTQ+ issues, and their creators. The films are apprised by a jury as a part of a prestigious international competition. An inherent part of the program are the accompanying discussions, workshops, exhibitions, and parties. Come to the festival that welcomed many reputable artists, such as Bruce LaBruce, Todd Haynes or Rhys Ernst.



At MEZIPATRA QFF, your film can compete for one of the three awards: Best Feature Film Award, Best Short Film Award, and Audience Award. The festival also has a non-competitive Documentary Section.

We are looking forward to considering your valuable films!

Entry Form:

In order to submit your film, please fill in the entry form and provide us with a screener of your film (both DVDs and online screeners are accepted).


Please note, that submitted films should not have been submitted to previous editions of the festival and the completion year must be 2018 and later.

Best regards,


Mezipatra Team

QFF Mezipatra, Francouzska 284/94, 101 00 Prague, Czech Republic
