Jul 29, 2016 | News, Uncategorized

The Vancouver Queer Film Festival returns this summer to screen over 80 films from 20 countries, pairing transformative films with parties, bannock, workshops and the most catalyzing gatherings in town.

The Two‐Spirit REELness Spotlight, curated by Harlan Pruden, includes the Vancouver premiere of: Two Soft Things, Two Hard Things by Mark Kenneth Woods and Michael Yerxa, and North Mountain by Bretten Hannam.

The Black Lives Matter Spotlight is a collaboration with Black Lives Matter‐Vancouver, fusing the stories of Black icons such as Miss Major with post‐film discussions and a party that’s all about Afrobeats.
