Movie Updates

The Out & Loud Pune International Queer Film Festival, powered by MIST, is an annual event showcasing handpicked queer films from all over the world. What’s more!? The festival promises an amazing line-up of performances and thought provoking panel discussions. Besides coming together for the love of art and cinema, the festival will also be an open platform for the LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender & Queer) to voice their concerns in a social-friendly environment. The first Out & Loud – PIQFF was held in Pune in the April of 2017 to an overwhelming response.

In April 2019, we are ready to present you the third edition of Out & Loud – PIQFF. Our aim is to have a bigger and better event for you, with an all new line-up of movies, performances and panel discussions.
