The Vancouver Queer Film Festival is one of the largest queer arts events in Western Canada
The Vancouver Queer Film Festival is one of the largest queer arts events in Western Canada. They illuminate, celebrate, and advance queer lives through film, education, and dialogue. Each August, they showcase 11 days of outstanding cinema, live performances, community-building events, and great parties, all in the environment of beautiful mountain and ocean views.
They seek content in all genres, specifically stories told by 2SLGBTQIA+ creators and centered on 2SLGBTQIA+ protagonists, overturn stereotypes, push boundaries, strive for change, arouse and tantalize, and above all, highlight the tremendous diversity of queer, trans, and Two Spirit people, artists, and communities. They uplift 2SLGBTQIA+ voices and stories from throughout BC, across Canada, and around the world.
