The Queer Lisboa - Lisbon Gay & Lesbian Film Festival is one of the most important European forums of international LGBT film/video.

Having first been held in 1997, it celebrated its 10th annual edition in 2006, showcasing 114 films (30 feature films, 34 documentaries and 50 short films).

It is one of the most important exhibition vehicles in Portugal of alternative cinema, never ceasing to provoke numerous debates on a number of central themes in the Portuguese contemporary society. At one time using almost exclusively the Cinema Quarteto, since 2007 it has been featured at the renewed Cinema São Jorge. Since then it has also gone by the designation Queer Lisboa.
