Queer West Film Festival August 7-9, 2015

The World at your doorstep

The Queer West Film Festival is gaining international reputation for offering the best of independent queer cinema and the opportunity to meet filmmakers and artists, participate in workshops and panel discussions, attend galas and after parties and see unexpected performances.

The New Home for the Queer West Film Festival; is the Revue Cinema 400 Roncesvalles Avenue(243 seats), Toronto Parkdale for Friday Aug 7, Sat. Aug 8 and Sunday August 9th 2015.

The Toronto Queer arts and Culture Festival won't be hosting an arts festival in 2015, instead we are expanding our annual film festival from an evening screening to a three day event. Each year we receive hundreds of entries that we have to refuse because of time constraints. Increasing the event will allow us to showcase the very best of emerging LGBTQ filmmakers both locally and internationally.

This will allow greater engagement, between both artists and the community and would allow us to include networking events, artist workshops and panel discussions with film directors. Queer West gratefully acknowledges the funding we received from TD Bank Group to help us host the 7th annual Toronto Queer West Film Festival,

Queer West Film Festival has received 200 film submissions for review, so far this year. Oct 1/14 to Mar 22/15. Deadline for final selection is April 1st, 2015.
