The Seattle Queer Film Festival, a program of Three Dollar Bill Cinema, has been held annually in October since 1996. The festival has grown into the largest event of its kind in the Pacific Northwest, gaining industry and audience recognition for showcasing the latest and greatest in queer film, from major motion picture premieres to emerging talent. An important venue in the Seattle film scene—and the social event of the season—the festival provides unique opportunities for visiting and local filmmakers to engage and entertain over 10,000 attendees.
The competition jury will select ﬁlms from four categories to receive awards: Best Feature Film, Best Documentary Film, Best Short Film, and Most Innovative Short Film. Audience awards voted on by festival attendees will be given for Favorite Narrative Feature, Favorite Documentary Feature, Favorite Gay Short Film, Favorite Lesbian Short Film, Favorite Transgender Film, and Favorite Local Film.
