Diversity emphasized

Organizers have also worked to ensure the festival is an inclusive experience by presenting various productions of all ages, colours, genders, sexual orientations and backgrounds.

There are several themes. Generations focuses of narratives of growing up and growing older as an LGBTQ+ person. There is a focus on QTBIPOC (queer, trans, black, Indigenous, and people of color)  filmmakers from Canada and the world. And Une Question de Genre explores themes of identity and gender beyond the coming out and transitioning narratives. There are other themes.

The festival offers a dinner and movie experience in support of local queer-owned eateries in Montreal and across the province of Quebec.
