A pioneer of LGBTQ cinema for over 30 years, image+nation, Film Festival LGBTQueer Montréal is the oldest festival of its kind in Canada, showcasing award-winning local and international films that strive to preserve the authenticity and diversity of LGBTQ+ voices while chronicling an evolving queer cinematic practice. The Festival explores New Queer Storytelling – both the uniqueness and the universality of these stories – offering queer and non-queer identifying audiences contemporary representation of what it means to be LGBTQ+ in the 21st century. image+nation’s mission is to promote and prepare contemporary and future generations of queer storytellers while offering platforms for sharing LGBTQ+ stories and lives to encourage self-identification and empathy.
image+nation reflects our changing world and brings audiences contemporary ideas of what it means to be LGBTQ+ today — stories for all to see and to share.
In 2020-2021, image+nation expands its traditional festival form and becomes a living and continuously developing LGBTQ+ cultural exploration space where you can see your stories and share them every day of the year through our new I+N Festival+ and our constantly evolving I+N e/spaces, to name but a few of the discoveries that await!
