Toronto Queer Film Festival

Wednesday, 24 March 2021 until Sunday, 28 March 2021

Since 2016, the Toronto Queer Film Festival has showcased the film and video art of queer and trans creators. We celebrate vigour, resistance, and defiance over nationalism and assimilation. We elevate Indigiqueer/Trans/2 Spirit filmmakers and filmmakers of colour where others erase or tokenize.

Fifty years have passed since the Stonewall riots. As we stand at the precipice of a new era, a crucial task ahead of us is to imagine the future of 2STLGBQ+ liberation. One of countless things we are robbed of as marginalized peoples is our future. Not only may our lives be cut short by violence, our very imaginations are stifled by oppresion. The power of representation is not only in narrating the present but also allowing for possibilities in future tense. Just as our oppressors try to erase us from history, so do they endeavour to deny us space in the times to come. Worse still, systems of oppression exert power over the marginalized by dictating our future to us; a mistep made even by our allies.
