LGBTQ2+ Programming

Our roster of LGBTQ2+ films is significant thanks to the wide range of titles spanning the world. Films are selected from major LGBTQ2S+ festivals including Inside Out Toronto and the San Francisco International Film Festival. This slate displays the profound diversity that exists within this community and tells stories through films serious and comical, true and fictional, entertaining and life-changing. This programme slate is sponsored by Lisa and Scott McCain.

In 2019, WIFF was honoured to host Trixie Mattel, an American singer, actor, drag queen and recognized “Skinny Legend.” Trixie is the winner of “RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars” season 3. Trixie Mattel performed a set and introduced the screening of the cult drag-queen classic The Adventures of Priscilla – Queen of the Desert, directed by Stephan Elliott. A meet & greet was held at WIFF Village following the film and performance, with other notable local drag queens accompanying.
