Vancouver Queer Film Fest

This week, the Vancouver Queer Film Festival presented by RBC (VQFF) kicks off with its annual celebration of queer cinema, taking place virtually starting tomorrow to Sunday, August 22.

VQFF will be presented online in a video-on-demand (VOD) format. Most films will be available throughout the 11-day celebration, with all content available to stream across BC.

Both films and stories have the incredible power of bringing us together and building strong and diverse communities. In a year so heavily defined by isolation and segregation, a need to connect and hear our collective voice is stronger than ever.
