Its been a tough more-than-a-year. We held BQFF in 2020 at the very edge of the beginning of the global pandemic. Through this last year we’ve wondered, met (even once in person at a rooftop) to think about how to do this festival again. With our meagre resources, while we barely hang onto jobs and sanity, amidst break-ups and friendships, and of course the pall of illness and death that surrounds us all and has touched some of us.

But we believe in the magic of this festival, and specifically our audience. So we hobble back now, and hope you are still here, watching with us.

Here’s to a future full of movies, short and long, crazy and dull, sweet and wicked.
