The Philadelphia International Gay & Lesbian Film Festival was founded in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania by TLA Entertainment Group in 1995. The event is the third largest of its kind in the US, and the largest on the East Coast.
It takes place every year for two weeks in July and shows as many as 200 films.
As of 2009, the Festival is now called QFest.
TLA had previously hosted an annual lesbian and gay film festival in the 1980s at the two cinemas the company ran in Philadelphia at that time: the TLA on South Street and the Roxy Screening Room on Sansom Street. However, it lacked the visibility, influence and longevity of the more recent festival.
