Toronto Queer Film Festival is proud to present the 2024 Symposium, Visions of Care and Collaboration.

During the annual festival season, TQFF’s Industry Programming team invites artists, writers, and community workers to host radical and innovative learning opportunities for free to the public. This is the first year since 2019 where we are offering in-person programming again with a hybrid, online format. All events will be livestreamed and accessible in the TQFF video on demand archive.

Visions of Care and Collaboration brings forward the hope of building a community full of love, respect, and growth. The current state of the world is crumbling with public health abandonment, dirty politics, and pushing bootstraps ideologies of individualism in service of capitalist accumulation and resource hoarding. Visions of Care and Collaboration imagines a world where taking care of each other becomes a revolutionary act: engaging in mutual aid, prioritizing community, and dismantling consumerism.

We create space for conversations around needs, necessary changes, and how to develop relationships with each other and our environments. We want to see a world where we acknowledge each other’s struggles, but are there for each other with support and new ways of thinking.

Join us for an exciting weekend full of workshops, panels, presentations and performances by and for queer and trans creators.
