This year’s Inside Out Film Festival marks its 22nd year of bringing to Toronto the best in queer cinema from Canada and around the world. Running from May 17 to 27, 2012, most screenings will take place at the TIFF Bell Lightbox, but be sure to check the schedule for venues and times of the films you want to see.
Opening the festival is the Canadian premiere of My Brother the Devil from UK director Sally El Hosaini about two brothers and gang life in East London. The film has already won awards at Sundance and the Berlin International Film Festival this year, so it’s sure to be a hot ticket.
Other programming at the festival includes the International Focus, this year on Scandinavia; a series of Out in the City screenings that bring queer cinema to various neighbourhoods in the city; and there’s a Women’s Spotlight, brining Thom Fitzgerald’s Cloudburst and Alexandra Therese Keining’s Kiss Me to the screen.
There are over 200 films to enjoy over the 11 days of the festival. Inside Out runs from May 17 to 27, 2012 and you can find out all about the film programmes and schedule, or purchase tickets at the Inside Out Festival website.
