Queer West Film Festival in 2016 is about; glory, shame, distaste, trash and beauty. This year we are walking on the wild side, with 24 Premier films, never seen in Canada; on sexual fetishes, sadomasochism and lesbian violence, as well as more traditional films on gender identity and human rights; We enjoy creating a festival by looking at the queer perspective from all corners of the world, perspectives that challenge normative views, propose an alternate way of thinking, and approach life and storytelling from another way. We’re proud to be the Greater Toronto Area second largest LGBTQ film festival. 8th Annual Queer West Film Festival Full Listings & Tickets Sales
