Announcing the 2024 24th Korea Queer Film Festival(KQFF) International Submissions Results(Official Selection).

2024-05-08

Greetings from the Korea Queer Film Festival Executive Committee.

It is our great pleasure to announce the International Selection for the 2024 24th Korea Queer Film Festival.

This year we received 237 entries from 52 countries and selected a total of 17 films for screening. Although we wish nothing more than to showcase all of them, we can unfortunately only screen but a sliver. We extend both our congratulations to the select few, and our hopes and encouragement to all of our entrants.

Invited films will be announced at a later date, alongside our final film list.

We hope that the films from our Official Selection will enrich the Korea Queer Film Festival with its diverse portrayals of queer lives and perspectives.



1. Evaluation Criteria

1) Overall quality: artistic direction, editing, sound editing, actors’ performances, among others

2) Topicality: whether the film’s overall message is topical to Korean society

3) Popular appeal: whether the film has popular appeal, and if so, how broad is it

4) Diversity: whether the film portrays unique issues/topics that are hard to come by outside the scope of a film festival(Because it's experimental, because it's an unfamiliar genre, because it's a work in a country you don't have access to, etc.)

5) Others: whether the film spotlights any overlooked or neglected issues pertaining to the queer community, or the queer lives and perspectives of those outside of the Western world
