Queersicht is a gay and lesbian film festival held in Bern, Switzerland. Founded in 1997, it is the oldest film festival for LGBT and queer movies in Switzerland. It is linked to radical left-wing and alternative structures and has a non-profit structure. The festival attracts around 3,500 spectators each year.

The name is a pun on the words queer (colloquial for 'homosexual') and quer, which means cross in German. The name could thus be loosely translated as "crossview".
