The festival accepts submissions in three categories:

  • performance

Submissions are accepted on GFEST website :

The theme of this year’s festival, which takes place in November in venues across London, is ‘Queer Art queries..’

Niranjan Kamatkar, artistic director of GFEST said ‘Since we put out the open call for artists this year we have had great interest from all over the arts community. There is still time to submit ideas to us. We are looking for submissions from artists and organisations, with a particular focus on collaboration across art form, age and cultural backgrounds.

‘We want to encourage artists to work together on exciting, thought provoking and innovative work. We want to query what happens in the queer arts world.’


Now in its 6th year GFEST enjoys showcasing an exciting selection of work from LGBTQ artists around the world as well as hosting emerging and established artists from London. Past works shown have come from Iran, Singapore, Malaysia, New Zealand as well as Europe, the United States and Canada.
