The early-bird FREE deadline is January 31, 2022. We have extended this deadline to March 31, 2022!

Submissions close April 30, 2022. This is your chance to screen your short or feature film at one of Canada’s most prestigious queer film festivals!

The Vancouver Queer Film Festival is the largest queer arts event in Western Canada. We seek work that confronts stereotypes, pushes boundaries, provokes conversation, and above all, highlights the tremendous diversity of queer artists, locally, nationally, and internationally.

The Festival presents over 100 films each year, including shorts, documentaries, fictional narratives, and experimental works. We host workshops, discussions, parties, and performances. Situated in one of the most spectacular cities in the world, we welcome visiting artists and industry professionals, and provide great opportunities for both work and play. Submit your film through FilmFreeway!
