Vancouver Queer Film Festival’s 30th anniversary will take place August 9 – 19, 2018. As announced at VQFF2017’s Closing Gala, the theme for our 30th anniversary Festival will be “Our Lives in Pictures” with our program seeking to reflect the diversity and complexity of queer, trans, and two-spirit artists and communities as portrayed through film and media art over the last three decades. Until then, you can still help us bring the best queer, trans, and two-spirit films and artists to our 30th anniversary Festival by attending our Fall Gala on October 28. The Fall Gala is a fabulous fundraising cocktail party and art auction and all funds raised will go directly to illuminating, celebrating and advancing queer lives by supporting Out in Schools and the Vancouver Queer Film Festival. As a special treat, we’ll be giving Fall Gala attendees a sneak peek at the creative for the 2018 Vancouver Queer Film Festival “Our Lives in Pictures.” We can’t wait to see you at the Fall Gala and we look forward to celebrating our past, critically examining our present, and dreaming into our futures with you at the 30th Anniversary Vancouver Queer Film Festival next August!
