Queer Emergencies-Symposium 2021

Panel Discussion: Decentralized experiences: Queer, trans and 2S moving image practices in rural settings.

The Toronto Queer Film Festival 2021 is excited to welcome you to a panel discussion on Decentralized experiences: Queer, trans and 2S moving image practices in rural settings.

A zoom panel discussion with filmmaker Kennlin Barlow and multidisciplinary artist Gil Goletski hosted by B.G-Osborne as part of the 2021 TQFF Symposium. Decentralized experiences: Queer, trans and 2S moving image practices in rural settings,  aims to address and provide avenues for queer, trans, and two-spirit experiences and challenges in creating moving-image work in rural settings, working alone versus collaboratively. The discussion welcomes ideas while acknowledging how environments continue to shape creative people’s identities and practices in these evolving times.

Our panel host B.G–Osborne (Beck) is curator of screening STILL (,) HERE which is a part of CFMDC event series which is co- presented by Toronto Queer Film Festival this year.

As a  queer and trans video artist from rural Ontario, Beck is constantly missing home, they are interested in meeting and talking with queer, trans and 2S moving-image artists who are carving out spaces outside of large cities to create meaningful work, work that goes beyond transition narrative.

Beck invites you to participate in the panel discussion by submitting your questions

for the panelists, and they will do their best to answer them. The discussion

will be streamed on TQFF website during the symposium weekend April 23-25.

Deadline for submitting your questions: 8th March 2021.
