Queering the Box

GLSEN Hudson Valley announces a Pride Month Film Series: Queering the Box

The Mission of Queering the Box is to shine a light on our intersecting identities and acknowledge that in their complexities there is strength and creativity. 

Checking a box is often limiting as it can force us to choose definitive qualities about ourselves when really our identities are infinite and ever evolving. 

Our objective is to highlight the intersection of queerness and other oppressed identities and to center the voices and experiences of marginalized folks within the LGBTQ community.

We are looking for film submissions in 2 categories:

Feature
Feature must highlight the experiences at the intersection of queerness and another oppressed identity.
Please be intentional to center the voices of marginalized folks within the LGBTQ community.

The age(s) of the submitter(s) is not a qualifier for this entry.

Youth Short
Short must highlight the experiences at the intersection of queerness and another oppressed identity.
Please be intentional to center the voices of marginalized folks within the LGBTQ community.

Submissions will only be accepted from Hudson Valley youth 19 or under at date of submission. Confirmation of legal age is required.

Films will be screened and selected for inclusion in the series by Hudson Valley students. Filmakers will be notified of inclusion in the series and screening date, location, and time by May 9th.

Submit your Feature or Youth Short through WithoutaboxFilmFreeway, or our Chapter submission form today! Submission deadline April 6th.
