QCinema is Fort Worth's source for the best in gay and lesbian film. Must be a Fort Worth premiere. Our mission is to provide a voice for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender persons by presenting films, videos and live programs that not only represent the diversity of our community but educate, enlighten and entertain us all.
Founded in 1998 by Shawn A. Moore and Todd Camp, QCinema’s early origins included occasional community screenings and a film discussion group at Texas Christian University before Moore suggested that it be expanded into a full-fledged, four-day festival in July of 1999. .
What started out as an annual film festival has expanded into year-round events with an inclusive spirit that takes in all facets of the LGBTQ community. The film series, primarily at The Modern Museum of Fort Worth, is known not merely for the films themselves, but also as a gathering place and rallying point for Tarrant County’s gay culture.
