The Toronto Queer Film Festival is a new initiative that will take place over three evenings from June 22-24 at Cinecycle in downtown Toronto.

As a festival, we are committed to foregrounding work by and about communities typically underrepresented in mainstream film festivals. Applications are open to everyone interested in fostering a vision of what radical queer cinema means today. We especially encourage applications from Indigenous people, people of colour, women, persons with disabilities, queer, trans, non-binary, and two-spirit people.

We’re looking to bring together individuals committed to a community-run, community-backed queer film festival that prioritizes art and politics over mainstream media productions and corporate sponsorships. If you’re interested in volunteering to help put together what we hope will be a fantastic series of film screenings, we’d love to hear from you!
