NEW QUEER CANADIAN CINEMA
Nov 10 | 9:00pm
@ OCAD University
Sliding scale $5-15
(no one turned away for lack of funds)
This eclectic program of documentary and narrative works offer a glimpse into a dynamic spectrum of queer and trans communities in our Canadian settler society. In Another Feather in Her Bonnet, Kent Monkman’s alter-ego Miss Chief Eagle Testickle plays the bride in a wedding to famed designer Jean Paul Gaultier, using her attire to talk back to a particularly insulting form of cultural appropriation. Something beautiful emerges from Interphase, a splendidly rich animation. A sinister void stalks neurodivergent Gil in Hole. Farm Boy depicts a world of yearning and regret that hovers between dream and nightmare. In Behind Doors, a living saint receivers petitioners from all corners, but being sacred isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Battle Cry goes behind the scenes of the performance of a drag queen at Toronto’s Buddies in Bad Times theatre, blurring the line between process and result.

The Toronto Queer Film Festival is a volunteer-run, artist-centered festival that is entirely supported by arts council grants and donations (no corporate sponsorships). There are no submission fees for filmmakers to apply, all events are pay what you can/no one turned away, all screenings are captioned and ASL interpreted, and proceeds from the festival are prioritized to pay artists.
We can’t do all of this without your support. Currently TQFF is reliant on community donations to reach our goals as well as to make the festival happen. Please consider becoming a supporter today to receive benefits and to help us continue to build a diverse and representative platform for queer and trans artists in Canada.
