We invite you to submit your film or video for consideration. The Vancouver Queer Film Festival is the largest queer media event in Western Canadawith approximately 13,000 viewers each year. Each year we host 11 days and nights of outstanding cinema, performances, networking events and parties, all in the backdrop of beautiful mountain and ocean views.
The Vancouver Queer Film Festival privileges outstanding innovation, regularly showcasing work that confronts stereotypes, pushes boundaries, arouses and tantalizes, and above all, highlights the tremendous diversity of queer artists, locally, nationally and internationally. We present over 90 films each year, including short- and feature-length documentaries, narrative and experimental works.
Situated in one of the most spectacular cities in the world, we welcome visiting artists and industry professionals and provide great opportunities for both work and play. Amidst our film programming, we host a palate of workshops, discussions, parties and performances that are sure to engage and excite our diverse audience. We offer over $2,500 in juried and audience choice awards, masterclasses, workshops and industry networking events in addition to an array of parties and galas.
Please note, only artists whose films are being considered will be contacted. We do not sent formal rejection letters or emails. However, we welcome any questions or feedback from artists regarding their submissions to our Festival.
