“Every year, the Vancouver Queer Film Festival has impressed us with the quality of their film programming, their expert festival organization, and the invaluable contribution they make to the LGBT community in Vancouver. Our staff looks forward to attending the Festival every year.”

OUTtv is Canada’s first 24-hour LGBT themed television network and has been a partner of the Festival since 2001. OUTtv and the VQFF have developed a mutually beneficial relationship over the years through our shared commitment to independent film. We are pleased to bring you two audience-voted awards for feature length and short films supported by OUTtv. The selected winners are announced at the Closing Gala by Brad Danks, OUTtv’s Chief Operating Officer.

OUTtv believes in the power of film and the talent of independent filmmakers. The Vancouver Queer Film Festival provides a vital platform for LGBT stories to be seen and appreciated. The Festival offers a number of ways for OUTtv to meet subscribers and thank them for supporting us. We enjoy saying a few words before the films we sponsor and enjoy the warm response from the audience. The VQFF has provided OUTtv a way to say ‘thank-you’ to subscribers and to provide support to filmmakers through our sponsorship of the Hot Pink Shorts and People’s Choice awards.

OUTtv and VQFF are pleased to celebrate queer lives together, watch for their trailers this year before all VQFF screenings!
