|For those who aren’t familiar or haven't had a chance to attend and experience this amazing festival, the Toronto LGBT Film Festival is organized by Inside Out, a not-for-profit registered charity started in 1991 that exists to challenge attitudes and change lives through the promotion, production and exhibition of film and video made by and about lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans (LGBT)+ people of all ages, races and abilities.
Every year the Toronto LGBT Film Festival takes over TIFF Bell Lightbox and screens both short & feature-length films running in the last week of May bringing artists, filmmakers and audiences from around the world to showcase their art... not to mention the incredible teams and volunteers behind the scenes that make this festival an annual success. Such a success that it is now the largest festival of its kind in Canada, and well-recognized internationally.
Why Do We Sponsor?
It's easy - we love films, we believe in the power of art to change minds, we believe in being fully inclusive to all those who chose to work with us, and we are excited to openly celebrate the diversity of our great city! By sponsoring, we are helping more films enter and more people the opportunity to experience the festival. We are also impressed by the army of volunteers who make this festival happen, along with a committed staff that deliver beyond all expectations.
