The UP Film Institute congratulates James Fajardo for being selected as one of the finalists at the 9th Bangalore Queer Film Festival (BQFF). James’ film, “A Letter to the Person I Have Met on Tinder” had its first international screening last March 10, 2018 at the Goethe-Institut Bangalore.

The BQFF is an annual event full of queer films from the world over, photo exhibitions, art exhibitions, performances and panel discussions. Over the years, BQFF has become an entrenched part of the cultural landscape of Bangalore. The festival serves as a space for LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender) concerns to be voiced through the medium of moving image. At BQFF, we are firmly interested in both straightforward LGBT films and wildly queer and radical films.

Once again, congratulations James Fajardo!
