We Need Your Support!

The Wotever DIY Film Festival showcases queer, DIY film by and for the LGBTQI* community.

We are now into our sixth year and are looking to expand the festival as to reach a wider and more diverse audience. We need film festival sponsorship to make this happen. Can you help?

What is Wotever DIY Film Festival?

Started in 2012 as a one evening event, the festival is now a 3-4 day festival held at DIY Space for London. We screen the best film from queer filmmakers, professionals and enthusiastic amateurs and show that you don’t need a gazillion quid to make a cracking film. We’re constantly working towards greater inclusivity and accessibility and believe that filmmaking and viewing should be for everyone, regardless of your budget.

Our ethos and selection criteria

We have a particular interest in films about queer people and queer culture reclaiming space. Other than that, our only criteria for submissions is that they must be in keeping with our Wotever ethos and as such we do not consider film submissions that are racist, misogynist, transphobic, homophobic, ableist, sizeist, classist or are in any way prejudiced or exclusionary towards a particular group or identity. We welcome films that push the boundaries of queer thinking and ideology, are thought-provoking and progressive. Saying that, we also appreciate a nice queer-meets-queer love story, slapstick comedy or music video we can dance to.

This is a film festival by and for the queer community, and we especially love to see submissions from people who may feel under-represented in the queer community, such as QTIPOC, trans and disabled groups as well as people with refugee status.
