For all of those who are not aware of the Inside Out Film Festival, let me tell you. It is a not-for-profit registered charity that is existing to challenge the attitudes and change the lives through the promotion, production, and exhibition of the movie made by and about gay, lesbian, bisexual, and trans or LGBT people of all the races, ages, and abilities. This has brought the LGBT community of Toronto together in the celebration of the best queer movie from Canada and around the world for nearly three decades.
Through their annual Festivals in Toronto and Ottawa, their filmmaker initiatives, our youth engagement, and their year-round events and the screenings. It is engaged every day in challenging the attitudes and changing the lives.
