Most people wouldn't necessarily put queer cinema and the South in the same sentence, but that doesn't mean it doesn't exist. In collaboration with Legendary Children Atlanta (a queer art platform), the 27th Annual Out On Film festival presents FOR FILTH!, a night dedicated to queer antics.

In addition to the fun, which includes drag performances from Atlanta's best queens, FOR FILTH! invites filmmakers from the South (Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, Alabama, Kentucky, Mississippi, Tennessee, Arkansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Texas) to submit a queer-related short. 

These submissions will be accepted anytime between June 15-August 15 and must be under 30 minutes in length. It costs $15 to apply. In addition, email legendarychildrenatlanta@gmail.com and include a link to watch the film online with any other necessary information. Also include the following: title, name of filmmakers, location, and a brief description.

Filmmakers chosen will be announced September 1.
