About the Lesflicks Film Awards

The Lesflicks Audience Awards aims to identify, highlight and promote the films, creators and distributors who are going above and beyond in helping to #AmplifyLesbianFilm

Why now?

In response to further lockdowns, the movement of awards season to April, and the number of excellent quality lesbian films released in 2020 we have made the decision to launch our awards to give everyone something positive to look forward to and focus on. Entertainment has been key to combatting boredom and isolation and we’re proud to be supporting those making these films – particularly when lesbian film in particular suffers from a lack of financial investment, quality distribution and marketing.

We’re doing something quite new and innovative, both acknowledging and celebrating our online organisation and also the remote isolated position many of us are in due to the pandemic across the world. This is the first event of its kind, and we’re excited to be innovating and creating a 100% digital awards event that celebrates an under-represented and often invisible part of the LGBTQ+ community.

If you’re forward thinking, diversity-friendly, care about ensuring all parts of the LGBTQ+ community are supported and want to help bring some positivity and support to the world then this is the event for you!
