The Queer Cinema Project

Housed within the College of Liberal and Creative Arts at San Francisco State University, the Queer Cinema Project (QCP) aims to connect academic, cultural, and political fields of production, fostering meaningful exchange between emerging and established filmmakers.

QCP serves as a hub for an innovative and rigorous approach to the research, production, study, and distribution of cinema that speaks directly to the many aspects of the Lesbian/Gay/Bisexual/Transgender/Queer (LGBTQ+) experience. QCP organizes its own events as well as collaborates on projects with partners and partner organizations within and beyond SF State.
