Showcasing the best of Toronto's
queer west end
our ignorance to prevail upon us and make us think we can survive alone, alone
alone in groups, alone in races, even alone in genders" - Maya Angelou
Queer West Film Festival August
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.
Box Office: Adult: $10, Youth: $7, Student: $7 and Seniors: $10 for
each evening. Queer West Film Festival donates half of the box office sales;
to a struggling film company or filmmaker. The rest of the proceeds goes towards
next year’s festival.
Queer arts and Culture Festivalwon'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 fromTD
Bank Group to help us host the 7th annual Toronto Queer West Film Festival,
