30 YEARS OF [ R ] EVOLUTIONARY STORYTELLING

Hitting our three-decade milestone this year, image+nation, Montréal’s LGBTQueer Film Festival is the oldest festival of its kind in Canada.

Our mission: the presentation, promotion and production of local, national and international LGBTQ cinema through our annual festival and year-round online projects and special presentations; to create opportunities for queer stories to be told and importantly, to be heard. We believe in democratizing LGBTQ voices and lives for all to witness and share.

Sharing our 30th birthday with Montreal’s 375th and Canada’s 150th, there is much to celebrate!!  Straight from the image+nation vault, this programme of award-winning short films highlights the bold, bright and beautiful local, national and international queer cinema voices that help shape our LGBTQ world.

The Festival takes place from November 23 to December 3, 2017.
