Inside Out is committed to improving accessibility to all audience members and filmmakers. We strive to ensure that all Toronto LGBT Film Festival venues comply with the principles outlined in the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act.

Reel Access

Reel Access is a year-long initiative by a working group of festival representatives and disability consultants, artists and activists, whose aim is to bring film festivals together to find solutions for improving accessibility at festival events.

Scent Allergies/Sensitivities

We encourage our patrons to refrain from wearing perfume, cologne and other scented products when visiting the theatres; however, we cannot guarantee a scent-free environment. Should you have an allergy to scented products and require a change in your seating location, please consult with our venue staff and if possible, we will relocate you to comparable seating.
