Inside Out’s 30th Anniversary LGBTQ Film Festival Postponed To October
Inside Out has postponed their upcoming film festival due to the Coronavirus pandemic…
Canada’s largest LGBTQ film festival has announced that they will postpone this year’s edition amid the ever-increasing health and safety concerns around the COVID-19 global pandemic. Inside Out’s 30th anniversary LGBTQ Film Festival, which was originally scheduled for May 21-31 in Toronto, will now run from October 1-11, 2020.
“In looking back over our history, we recognize all of the challenges that have strengthened us, and the many trials that our communities have faced,” Andria Wilson, Executive Director of Inside Out said in a statement. “We have spent the past year planning an epic celebration of our communities’ accomplishments, on screen and off, for our 30th anniversary festival, which was scheduled for May 21-31. And now, we are reaching out to let you know that, as you may have anticipated, our team will be holding off on our in-person celebration just a little bit longer.”
In addition to the new dates, Inside Out will also present several key initiatives in an online format. These include Inside Out’s LGBTQ international feature film financing forum, its annual short film pitch competition, the launch of the previously announced content platform for youth, and an online sneak peek of the festival’s 30th anniversary archival exhibit.
Since its initiation in 1991, Inside Out has become one of the largest festivals of its kind in Canada, offering year-round programming for emerging and established LGBTQ filmmakers.
All tickets and packages that have been previously purchased for this year’s festival will remain valid for the new October dates. For more information visit insideout.ca.
