TeaDance Gay and Lesbian Film Festival will showcase feature, documentary and short films from all over the world that are made by, about or of interest to the lesbian, gay, bi, trans and questioning community.  Taking place in Columbia, South Carolina, TeaDance will feature the best in LGBT cinema from all around the globe. 


Film is a dynamic medium with the power to educate, inspire, intrigue and bring people together.  Our festival will feature films of all genres in a jam-packed two day festival featuring not only films but also Q&A sessions with the filmmakers as well.


TeaDance hopes to not only show really good independent film, but also educate and entertain the public with films that feature LGBT characters and stories. Our mission is to have LGBT cinema a part of everyday culture and we want to expose it to as many people as we can.  For this reason our festival is free to the public. 


We are currently accepting submissions for our festival and are looking for films and scripts that:


- are made by LGBT filmmakers and/or

- feature LGBT characters and/or

- have subjects that may be of interest to the LGBT community.

- scripts/screenplays with a LGBT connection.


These films and scripts can be documentaries, comedy, horror, drama, experimental, music video, or any other genre as long as it has a LGBT connection.  Awards will be given out to the best film and filmmakers.  Greenville’s own Crave Uptown will serve as host and sponsor to this festival.


The 2018 Festival takes place September 29, 2018 at Tapp's Arts Center, 1644 Main St, Columbia, SC 29201
