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 – one of the largest queer film festivals in Central Europe. Submit your work for the19th edition of the festival, be it a feature film, short film, or a documentary. Join Mezipatra and let us see the queer world through your eyes!

QFF MEZIPATRA is the largest queer film festival in the post-communist space. Every year, we introduce around a hundred Czech and foreign films centred around LGBTQ+ issues, and their creators. The films are apprised by a professional jury as a part of a prestigious international competition. 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 QFF MEZIPATRA, your film can compete for one of the three awards: Best Feature Film Award, Best Short Film Award and Audience Award. The films are judged by an international jury, students' jury and by the festival audience. The festival also has a non-competitive Documentary Section.

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 2017 and later.

Look what a blast we had in 2017 and join us for the 19th edition!

We are looking forward to your awesome films!

Best regards,
