| reelout 8 queer film + video festival
jan 25 - feb 4, 2007
A world of infinite possibilities - reelout 8 offers you eight days of queer cinema guaranteed to entertain, provoke and inspire. Across Canada and around the globe, queer identities are being discovered, challenged, redefined, and honoured. Filmmakers are exploring and capturing "queerness" on film and reelout 8 is bringing it to you.
More and more, queer representation is making it to the big screen and even to the Oscars - but who are we really seeing up there? Not the faces of queer refugees, trans prisoners, two-spirited warriors or intersex activists. Queer independent film is relevant more than ever. I'm excited to see us challenging the mainstream, moving to a place where sexuality and gender, in all their splendid forms, are celebrated.
As you flip through this year's festival guide, you will see the growing number and variety of our supporters and partners. Big thanks to all our festival friends! Of course, reelout wouldn't be who we are without the commitment and energy of staff, collective members, volunteers and the reelouters who have come before us. We put together one fine festival.
Whether you are a documentary buff, appreciate art films, enjoy shorts or like a good love story, we have it all - and don't forget about the fabulous parties where you can dance and flirt the night away! Since reelout 8 is all about possibilities, take a chance on seeing a film which may not have been your first pick or cozy up to someone you haven't met before. So, shake off the snow, grab a warm seat and let the show begin.
On behalf of reelout, enjoy the festival!
