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.

TQFF is a volunteer-run, artist-centred festival that is entirely supported by donations. There are no submission fees, and all proceeds from the festival will go towards paying filmmakers an honorarium for their work. Please help support the festival by making a donation today.
