“I enjoy watching beautiful queer films from all over the world. But more than that, I feel like I belong here”

Angelina Cantada, Filmmaker

The Vancouver Queer Film Festival is a venue where filmmakers like myself can, not only share their work, but celebrate diversity with the queer community. I always look forward to this annual summer event in Vancouver. It’s a place where I feel comfortable, safe and welcome. Of course, I enjoy watching beautiful queer films from all over the world. But more than that, I feel like I belong here. And for a queer, immigrant woman of colour, that means a whole lot. Thank you, VQFF!
