QSpot LGBT Community Center in Ocean Grove is accepting submissions for the second annual QFest New Jersey LGBT Film and Digital Media Festival to be held on the weekend of April 7,8 and 9 2017.

QFest’s goal is to support and promote LGBT film and digital media, the individuals who create it, and the stories and people they highlight. QFest is produced by QSpot LGBT Community Center which is one of New Jersey’s largest LGBT community centers. The deadline for regular submissions is February 27.

To be included in the QFest submissions must have content about or a connection to the LGBT community. Preference will be given to unreleased work, work by New Jersey residents, and work that exemplifies artistic expression (in multiple forms), education or inclusion.

“QFest recognizes and salutes the contributions LGBT individuals make to the media landscape and our world culture,” said John Mikytuck, QSpot Executive Director. “QFest provides a venue where people can experience LGBT film & digital media which might not otherwise be seen. QSpot celebrates the unique work, accomplishments, and talent of the LGBT community and we’re honored to produce QFest.”

QFest entry categories are Long/Short Fiction, Long/Short Documentary, Animated Long/Short, Music Video, Smart Phone App, Video Game and Website. Winning submissions in all 10 categories will receive prizes.
