Opening Night Party

Aug 11, 2022
9 PM

šxʷƛ̓ exən Xwtl’a7shn Plaza

After the screening and local premiere of The Empress of Vancouver, join us for our Opening Night Party at the šxʷƛ̓ exən Xwtl’a7shn Plaza (Hamilton St. and W. Georgia St.).

In theme with the DIY glam aesthetics of our opening film, guests are encouraged to come dressed in whatever finery makes you feel the most beautiful, the most strong, the most outrageously queer. With performances from artists featured in The Empress, music, food, and good company, this evening will be a celebration and reunion of community.

Please Note: Culturally appropriative apparel is inappropriate for our shared spaces, and you may be asked to leave for the safety of other guests. If you have questions about this, please connect with us beforehand at

ASL interpretation provided.

Free admission with $5 VQFF membership. 19+ only.
