About Out On Screen

Celebrating its 30th Anniversary in 2018, the Vancouver Out On Screen Film & Video Society is a registered charity and professional queer arts organization dedicated to celebrating queer lives through film, education and dialogue. Our vision is of a society where gender and sexual diversity are fully embraced. Our team is passionate about making a difference in our communities and we strive to create a culture that is in line with the values of the communities we serve.

The LGBT2Q+ and allied communities are at the center of everything we do. We are a part of, and do our best to serve, our big diverse queer family in BC. This means that we hold each other and every member of our community with the highest regard and compassion, and practice our values to the best of our ability.
