Montreal LGBT Film Festival
A pioneer of LGBTQ cinema for over 30 years, image+nation is the oldest festival of its kind in Canada, showcasing award-winning local and international films that strive to preserve the authenticity and diversity of LGBTQ+ voices while chronicling an evolving queer cinematic practice. The Festival explores New Queer Storytelling - both the uniqueness and the universality of these stories - offering audiences contemporary representation of what it means to be LGBTQ+ in the 21st century.
Equally, image+nation’s mission is to promote and prepare both contemporary and future generations of queer storytellers and media makers. Through the development of educational and mentoring initiatives such as I+N Explore (inaugurated in 2016) image+nation continues its dedication to nurturing emerging content for an evolving queer cinema while building empathy through sharing stories with audiences here in Canada and throughout the world with its online initiatives.
