Vancouver's largest queer art event, the Vancouver Queer Film Festival (VQFF) is a vibrant space for queer arts, culture, and community. It showcases dynamic and thought-provoking films from British Columbian, Canadian, and international creators. The theme of this year’s VQFF is “Still Here.”

“VQFF is on this August, and will feature films and interdisciplinary programming from queer filmmakers and artists whose work shows the many ways we fight for the fullness of our lives, for what and who we love, and for our shared futures. Our theme this year is ‘Still Here’, because our survival is an inevitable miracle. Nothing can stop us from taking root; we will always reach for the light and sky.” – Artistic Director Anoushka Ratnarajah

We're excited that numerous films from the CFMDC collection will be screening in this year's fest! We hope you can check them out.
