From the creators of the NOLA Horror Film Fest (selected as one of the "World's 50 Best Genre Film Festivals" by MovieMaker Magazine) comes QUEER SCREAMS FILM FESTIVAL. QUEER SCREAMS is a celebration of LGBTQ+ genre cinema from emerging and established queer artists within the community – locally, nationally and internationally. The festival will present opportunities to connect with LGBTQ+ horror/sci-fi/fantasy/thriller fans through film screenings, as well as personal interaction. We strive to contribute to an evergrowing community of genre film lovers by engaging in “the conversation” and the pursuit of positive queer representation in media.

QUEER SCREAMS is an “In Person” ONLY film festival with LIVE screenings. The festival proper is Saturday & Sunday, with a special theater sponsored genre (classic) screening Friday night. QSFF will present (but not be limited to): Live film screenings. Filmmaker’s Q&A. Special event screening. Award ceremony brunch. Networking opportunities. Special guests. Filmmakers of selected films receive two complimentary festival badges for ALL (festival sponsored) film screenings and events.

Visiting filmmakers can expect to experience the beauty and awesomeness of Portland, OR. Portland is a vibrant and scenic city, famed for its huge expanses of green space, from parks and forests to breathtaking mountaintops. Portland is best known for being a sustainability-minded, bike-friendly city with easy access to nature; plentiful coffee, art, craft beer, delicious food. And of course its slogan “Keep Portland Weird.”

A landmark of Portland cinema history, The Clinton Street Theater is one of the oldest operating movie houses in the United States. The Clinton Street Theater has always been about community. Famous for its long-standing exhibition of the Rocky Horror Picture Show, the theater is currently a magnet for independent/revival films, live music, theater productions, dance performances, sex positive theater & film, drag shows, comedy, burlesque, and more.
