Toronto Queer West Film Festival, August 7-9 2015

Posted on July 7, 2015

The Toronto Queer arts and Culture Festival won’t be hosting an arts festival in 2015, instead we are expanding our annual film festival from an evening screening to a three day event. Each year we receive hundreds of entries that we have to refuse because of time constraints. Increasing the event will allow us to showcase the very best of emerging LGBTQ filmmakers both locally and internationally.

This will allow greater engagement, between both artists and the community and would allow us to include networking events, artist workshops and panel discussions with film directors.

The City has also named 16 community torchbearers who were identified for the contributions they have made to their communities. Full biographies for each community torchbearer are available at http://bit.ly/1L3eMza.

Torontonians are encouraged to come out along the relay route and cheer on the torchbearers who will carry the Pan Am flame through city streets. More information about the torch relay route is available at http://www.TORONTO2015.ORG/torch-relay

The public is reminded that there will be road closures and rolling road closures as the relay travels through city streets. Residents and visitors are encouraged to use public transit, carpooling, cycling or walking to the community celebrations and to watch the relay. Those who are driving should allow extra time to get to and from their destination.
