Toronto Queer West Film Festival


Years running: 22 (since 2000)

Toronto Queer West Film Festival

International Queer Film Festival.


Queer West Film Festival is Queering Boundaries going beyond a fixed identity and embracing fluidity. Through the medium of film, the Queer West Film Festival will push for a more inclusive and complex queer identity; a queer identity that is necessarily shaped through interactions with place, space and community.

Our mission is to provide a voice for gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgendered and queer youth by presenting films and videos that only represent the diversity of the GLBT community. By providing innovative, diverse, accessible, quality screen events, which promote, stimulate, educate, enlighten, support queer cultures and entertain us all.
