JOIN US *YET AGAIN* & CELEBRATE LOCAL QUEER & TRANS BLACK / INDIGENOUS / PEOPLE OF COLOUR FILMMAKERS by catching some FREE SHORT FILMS!!!
yep still here bursting into glitter every time i see all of you enjoy the work of the relentlessly hardworking qtbipoc filmmakers of this community. doing it again with MORE SHORTS that, as always, will *allllll* feature queer and trans BIPOC in major roles in front of or behind the camera.
this is NOT a festival environment. we are committed to upholding a welcoming environment that is safe and judgement-free for all filmmakers & artists.
TIME: Doors – 630pm, Screening – 8pm
WHERE: 2nd floor, Main Gallery, Toronto Media Arts Centre @ 32 Lisgar St, Toronto, ON (Queen/Dovercourt)
***admission is FREEEE***
… but PWYC donations are encouraged! no matter how small, every bit of donation will guarantee you a raffle ticket, and a SWEEEEET prize (TBA but we promise it’s sweet ok?) for you to win at the end of the night. all proceeds will go directly to the filmmakers and towards continuing to put on these events.
you do not have to be queer and/or trans Black, Indigenous, POC to come BUT please be mindful of the space you take up. the capacity at this venue is slightly smaller (cozier?) than at the last two events!
ALSO it’s that time of year to support local artists & buy some goodies for all the lovely queers in your life (yes including yourself!! #selfcare) this time, even MORE artists will be tabling their goods for you all! #holidaysareforchosenfamily
ARTISTS TABLING: TBA
FULL LINEUP: TBA
