Submit Your Film


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 JuneĀ 14-17 in downtown Toronto. Submissions will open shortly in mid- to late-December.

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.


Submission Guidelines:

If you are interested in having one of your films featured, please submit the following via FilmFreeway:

  • Short bio
  • A synopsis of the film/video
  • A digital screener
  • Still images of the film/video
  • Relevant technical information

Please note: all films will be screened in Pro-Res HQ format. The final deadline for submissions is March 10, 2017, and we will notify selected filmmakers by mid-May.
