Toronto Queer Film Festival

The Toronto Queer Film Festival showcases contemporary, innovative, queer and trans film and video art. We are especially interested in supporting formally experimental films and/or social justice themed projects that center the experiences of Indigenous people, people of color, people with disabilities, transgender people, sex workers, porn makers, and other communities often marginalized in contemporary LGBT cultural programming and spaces.

The 2017 festival will take place over four evenings from June 14-17 in downtown Toronto. Submissions are now open until February 24.

TQFF is a volunteer-run, artist-centered festival that is entirely supported by donations. There are no submission fees, and proceeds from the festival will be prioritized to pay artists screening fees at or above the IMAA and CARFAC minimum rates. For more information about TQFF’s perspectives on charging submission fees and the payment of artist fees, please see:



At this point, TQFF has no institutional funding and is entirely reliant on community support to support our goals as well as to make the festival happen. Please help support the festival by making a donation today.
