After the festival is before the festival...


The team – including the board of the supporting organisation, Querbild e.V. – work the whole year round to ensure that the festival is a roaring success.


The Hamburg International Queer Film Festival has grown from humble beginnings – a small community-oriented film seminar at the University of Hamburg – to its current incarnation as a 6-day festival with about 70 films and events. It is the biggest and longest-running queer film festival in Germany. This development would not have been possible without our many committed volunteers.

Support during the festival week...


Nothing happens during the festival week without the active support of our volunteers. More than one hundred volunteers help us out each year, and we are always looking for more support on the ground. We need guides to direct and assist film-goers, and ballot sheet counters for our audience film awards.


If you want to get a taste of the festival atmosphere and watch queer films in October, this is the right place for you:
