News brief from Toronto Queer West Film Festival for 2016

 Press Release.

Fancy something a little bit different? Join Gay West Community Network Inc. (Queer West) who Hosts and Produces the 8th Annual Queer West Film Festival @ Innis Town Hall Aug 12-14 where we’ve made the jump from our annual evening screening to a weekend film festival, with financial support from presenting sponsor TD Canada Trust.

 Eight years of shaping, forming, breaking, discovering and finding, ­ Queer West Film Festival in 2016 is about; glory, shame, distaste, trash and beauty. 

This year we are walking on the wild side, with 24 Premier films, never seen in Canada; on sexual fetishes, sadomasochism and lesbian violence, as well as more traditional films on gender identity and human rights; We enjoy creating a festival by looking at the queer perspective from all corners of the world, perspectives that challenge normative views, propose an alternate way of thinking, and approach life and storytelling from another way. 

Tickets: $14 for adults per evening.   Students & Seniors with ID  $10 a day.  3 day pass $30 for Adults. Seniors 65+ & Students 3 day pass with ID $25,  only sold on Friday August 12th. 

We’re proud to be the Greater Toronto Area's second largest LGBTQ film festival. 

The  Film Festival will have a THEME for each night: Friday August 12 (7 Films) Gender is a social construct. Saturday August 13 (8 films) Role models – Inspiring people and places and Sunday August 14 (9 films) Antinormativity, Anticonformity. Each evening will have one 15 minute intermission.

Reception on August 11th. Full event schedule July 4th.
