Toronto Queer West Arts Centre says
Join Gay West Community Network Inc. (Queer West) who will Hosts and Produce the 8th Annual Queer West Film Festival @ Innis Town Hall Aug 12-14, 2016 with 24 Premier films, never seen in Canada. Our festival is about; glory, shame, distaste, trash and beauty. We enjoy creating a festival by looking at the queer perspective from all corners of the world, perspectives that challenge normative views, propose an alternate way of thinking, and approach life and storytelling from another way. We’re proud to be the Greater Toronto Area second largest LGBTQ film festival. General Admission: $10 each evening. 3 day pass $25.
