Inside Out LGBT Film Festival Kicks Off May 22

Starting today, May 22, Inside Out Toronto LGBT Film Festival kicks off another year of movies, parties and events at Toronto’s very own TIFF Bell Lightbox. Several of this year’s films are internationally acclaimed features making their Canadian premieres so if you want to be one of the first to catch any of these reknowned films you’d better head out!

Featuring works like Swedish trans filmmaker Ester Martin Bersmark’s Something Must Break (May 24 at 9:30pm), Teddy Award winning gay rights retrospective, The Circle (May 29 at 7:15pm), and sexually and politically charged Sundance favourite Drunktown’s Finest (May 26 at 9:30pm), there is plenty to see at this year’s festival.

Even though the festival officially ends on June 1, World Pride is luckily just around the corner and has prompted yet another amazing arsenal of queer cinema! Starting June 11, Bent Lens: Pride on Screen will be featuring free outdoor screenings, appearances by John Cameron Mitchell and Lee Daniels, and a retrospective on British great Derek Jarman.
