Welcome to the sixth edition of Out & Loud - Pune International Queer Film Festival, powered by Mist LGBTQ Foundation. Year after year, one thing we do not get tired of doing would only be Out & Loud. As we kick start the requirements for this edition, and make the required changes in our website very soon, here is one thing that we can spill it out for you. This year it's going to be a hybrid event. (Both in-person and virtual)
We are calling out our talented filmmakers globally to submit their amazing films. This year, any content highlighting marginalised communities can be submitted and not just calling for LGBTQ films. Last date to submit your entries will be 20.04.2022. Submit your masterpieces TODAY and only through FilmFreeway.
Call for Sponsors & Crowd-funding
Sponsorship & Partnership

Whether you would like to support our year-round art festivals and events or the Out & Loud - Pune International Queer Film Festival we look forward to customizing beneficial partnership package to support the independent filmmakers making voices of the community heard.

Mist aims to build stronger bonds within the queer community and with our allies. We do our best to create a space where you can showcase your talent, learn from other members of the community and be a part of the larger family. Mist runs solely on community events from members of the community and our allies and with the current situation, this has reduced by 70%. We have also learned technology for moving online is more expensive than a physical event. So we request you to help us reach our target to bring you a bigger and more fun PIQFF in July 2022.

Unfortunately, we could not attend the screening of our film, FOREIGN at this festival but the entire experience with the programmers was utterly effortless, professional and so organized! I wish them the best and can't recommend them enough!
Unfortunately, I haven't been able to attend the festival for I live in Canada, but I was very delighted that our film "The Fruit of Our Womb" was part of it and won a price. Communication was great before the festival, however during and after it tends to lack. I understand though that they are a lot of volunteers with a lot to deal with!
Great to part of such a nice festival. They had a great line up of films from around the world. Thank you for making the effort to make festivals like this.
Nice ambience, great experience, responsible crew. Overall, I enjoyed the festival.
