image+nation Canada’s first LGBT2SQ+ film festival and pioneering platform of queer stories reached a three and a half-decade milestone with its 35th anniversary edition from November 17 to 27, 2022! image+nation35 included a stellar lineup of in-cinema and virtual screenings that offered audiences the best and brightest in contemporary queer cinema, as well as two special sections on LGBT2SQ+ cinema from Ukraine and Iran. Again this year, the Canada Media Fund returned as Festival Presenting Partner helping the Festival bring a remarkable anniversary edition to cinemas in Montreal and screens online across Quebec, as well as being presenting collaborator of the inaugural I+N@PHI x FMC/CMF SERIES.

With over 40 narrative and documentary features and 13 compelling short film programmes from 28 countries, image+nation35 unspooled on four Montreal film screens – Cinéma Impérial, Cinéma Moderne, De Sève Cinema, PHI Centre – while again this year offering programming across Quebec via the virtual Festival platform, much of which is still available to view.

Representing diverse lived experiences is core to the Festival’s ethos and image+nation35 showcases diverse perspectives that respond and contribute to wider conversations about cultural, sexual, and gender identit(ies). The Festival’s dedication to exploring new frontiers of queer storytelling is evident through its programming focuses such as Voix autochtones / IndigiqueerFirst Voices, R/evolution: the Vanguard, this year’s Ukrainian queer cinema retrospective, a special Iranian shorts programme and of course its signature sections, Queerment Québec, Focus France and Made au Canada.
