ShanghaiPRIDE Film Festival 2017


The Time is Now 酷影相随

Many said that life is like a movie, it is a form of language that showcases reality and touches souls. Every year during ShanghaiPRIDE Film Festival (ShPFF), we want to present diversity, and through these queer films, we not only share them with the community, we hope to reach out to more of the general public.

ShPFF, part of ShanghaiPRIDE, started in 2009 and was re-launched in 2015, continues to support new Chinese filmmakers and bringing the cutting edge of international queer cinema to Shanghai.

This year, ShPFF will screen the selected films on 11-June and 18-June as a two-full-day queer films marathon. Almost 40 films have been selected from 12 countries/locations all over the world. Some of the winning films of Berlin International Film Festival Teddy Award and BFI Flare London LGBT Film Festival will also have their premiere in Mainland China at ShPFF.
