Why Support Out On Screen?

Out On Screen is a time-tested, multi-faceted queer arts organization with a proven record of delivering transformative programs.

The Vancouver Queer Film Festival rivals heavyweights in the international landscape of queer cinema. We court and secure a range of exceptional films of unparalleled artistic excellence while simultaneously advancing our focus on representations of marginalized voices within queer cinema. If we intend to remain a contender, we need your support.

Out in Schools changes lives and transforms classrooms. Isolation becomes connection. The closet becomes a bridge towards a bright future. LGBTQ youth take their first steps towards engaging in dialogue with their communities and loved ones about their authentic selves. We need your support to continue to provide essential LGBTQ programming that fills current curriculum gaps as well as foster more lasting change at every level in school districts across the province.

3 Year Strategic Priorities

ENHANCE Festival programming to create unforgettable experiences that combine riveting cinema with heart-stopping performances and parties that transport audiences beyond the ordinary into the extraordinary.

EXPAND the reach of our classroom programming to every school in the province while developing LGBTQ leadership capacity within rural communities to deepen and sustain place-based networks of support and impact.

STRENGTHEN organizational adaptivity and resilience by honing workflows, clarifying forecasts and investing in the attraction and cultivation of powerhouse talent and leadership.

We wouldn't have made it this far without visionary philanthropists like you.

We can't make it to our next level without you.
