Opening Gala Party: A Black and White Affair

Celebrate director Yen Tan’s black and white cinematic triumph by dressing up in style. Black and white attire encouraged! Our Opening Gala party is just a short sashay away from the Playhouse, under the open-air, starlit skies at the šxʷƛ̓exən Xwtl’a7shn (formerly known as Queen Elizabeth Plaza). Gala performances include the eye-popping artistry contortionist and boylesque dancer Vixen Von Flex, along with voguing trio Coven, who will take us on a journey through music and movement. Through it all, DJs Body Party will keep the night uplifted—to the moon and back.

Entry is free with membership, which will also be sold at the door. You only need to buy membership once to access any event during the Festival.
