TQFF Symposium 2022 Submissions

Queer Futurisms seeks to explore the future possibilities of 2Spirit/Queer/Trans existence and those who dream these possibilities for all of us through their art – be it through: speculative fiction, sci-fi, automythography, documentary, biography, etc.

In alignment with the guiding principles of TQFF, we ask that submissions to this symposium prioritize the principles of decolonization. How a decolonized existence can be realized for all in the future includes Indigenous sovereignty, Black liberation, anti-racism, accessibility for all, prison abolition, and a borderless world. TQFF seeks your perspectives and experiences on how we, as individuals, and through communal efforts, can shape the future.

Join our board of directors!

The Toronto Queer Film Festival is looking for volunteers to join our board of directors.

The Toronto Queer Film Festival is a nonprofit arts collective which launched in 2016 in response to an urgent need for exhibition space in Toronto for work by, and about, marginalized queer and trans people.

The board of directors is an integral part of TQFF and ensures that we meet our legal obligations as a registered non-profit organization in Ontario. The board of directors is an advisory body that assists the collective in meeting its legal and fiduciary obligations while maintaining its accountability to the communities it seeks to serve. The board is not involved in the programming or day-to-day operations of TQFF.

TQFF X Queer Cinema for Palestine!

Check out our tech collaboration with QCP!

Toronto Queer FIlm Festival empowers Queer Cinema for Palestine by providing its tech platform for streaming, video on demand and webinar for its events.

At TQFF we believe in empowering our communities and connecting them to join QCP in solidarity with Palestine!

Queer Cinema for Palestine (QCP) will open its virtual and physical doors this November for a collectively-curated 10-day film festival celebrating global queer realities and standing in solidarity with Palestinians.

QCP will run from 11-20 November and host more than a dozen events across five continents, both online and in person. QCP is a first-time global queer solidarity initiative that offers a vibrant space using art and culture to oppose the ongoing violence of Israeli apartheid.


Who we are

The Toronto Queer Film Festival is a collectively-run, artist-centered, not-for-profit festival that 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.
