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 2021. Be it online or offline based on the guidelines.

Testimonials about Out & Loud - PIQFF
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.
