According to Katharine Setzer, image+nation Programming Director, ‘although we love to screen amazing films from all around the world, we also have a great responsibility to support local filmmaking and the talent we have on our doorsteps. And these are all fantastic movies regardless of their origin.’ 

Awesome news Katharine, we couldn’t agree more!

In addition to the local films, we are equally anticipating the impressive international roster of queer realities and accomplished storytelling from across the globe. These will feature; Swedish drama Something Must Break, Mischa Kamp’s Boys (Holland), Sundance success story Appropriate Behaviour, the Russian portrait of fractured society Winter Journey, award-winning Swiss Docudrama The Circle, and Blair Doroshwalter’s disturbing documentary about the New Jersey Four Out In The Night.

The annual LGBT film festival will bring the best of world LGBT cinema for the 27th year in a row to Montréal, with a line-up of unflinching, powerful documentaries, beautifully shot art-house creations, hilarious comedies and more.

Image+nation 27 has something for all tastes, but this year, the festival organizers will deliver an added exotic treat: Image+Nation presents ‘New Latin Voices’, a Festival Focus specifically dedicated to the finest LGBT cinema from across Latin America.
