Queer West Film Festival in 2018?

“A Queer Language: Celebrating LGBTQ Cinema”

A few dedicated volunteers needed for 2018

 We have been giving some thought to mounting the Queer West film festival again  in spring. A simple formula: 3 to 6 people (No Board directors, more of an arts collective with no job titles), a grant (fairly easy to get), we already have submission platform on film freeway, two people to review films, a theme, a local theatre (Revue or Innis), simple program guide, a two or three day weekend (2 hrs each day) in Summer or Fall of 2018.

Piece of cake if done right and not too ambitious. We have had eight years of successful film festivals (2008-2016) Yes 2017 was a bummer and not held. We learned a lot from it. If we are to mount a new film festival,  the collective should Meet in January 2018  perhaps by Skype to get Film Freeway setup to start receiving submissions for four months and reviews done daily. Monthly community meetings could than start in April or early May  If interested send resume to queerwestinfo@gmail.com
