Inside Out connects Toronto audiences with the best queer cinema from around the world and creates a forum for discussion that is provocative, entertaining and inspiring.

Festival ticket sales only cover 20% of our operating expenses – so we truly rely on the support of our fabulous members to sustain our current activities and help us continue to grow.
