Image + Nation Film Festival Wrap-Up

Montreal has the pride of hosting the largest and oldest Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgendered in Canada. It seems like we are not growing tired of it either. The complete opposite, actually. Each year more and more people wake up to the fact that queer films are not just for the gay community, but are for all.

The festival opened with a sold out screening of American film "Were the World Mine" (opening film). A slew of well-attended screenings, workshops, master classes, guests, and parties followed in the ensuing 11 days. This once small film festival has become and important and loved one amidst the myriad of film festivals that pass through Montreal. Bravo to the organizers!
