Call for Entries into Queer Bits Film Fest

Pride Films and Plays is accepting LGBT short films seeking their Chicago premieres for Queer Bits Fall Film Festival which will be held on November 10th, 2014 at The Public House Theatre. Entry forms and additional material are available here. Pride Films and Plays’ Queer Bits Film Festival is now in its third year and prides itself in providing the best LGBT short films with their Chicago premieres. Pride Films and Plays presents Queer Bits Fall Film Festival on November 10th, 2014 at The Public House Theatre (3914 N Clark, Chicago, IL) at 7:30 PM. The first screening and incarnation of Queer Bits occurred in November 2012 in Center on Halsted’s Hoover-Leppen Theatre. The enthusiasm for that and a subsequent festival in November 2013 led Pride Films and Plays to continue the festival as an on-going event alongside their annual Great Gay Screenplay Contest. In June 2014, Pride Films and Plays presented Queer Bits Film Festival, a sold-out 90 minute program of short films and webisodes, which was followed in September 2014 by the Women’s Words Film Festival, a very successful program of short films and webisodes with lesbian characters and themes which were written and/or directed by women.
