The 25 Coolest Film Festivals in the World, 2019

MovieMaker Coolest Film Festival Festivals

Inside Out LGBT Film Festival

May 21-31, 2020 / Toronto, Ontario and Ottawa, Ontario, Canada / insideout.ca

Staged jointly in Toronto and Ottawa (the latter since 2007), the 11-day annual LGBTQ-themed Inside Out film festival features screenings, panels, Q&As and art installations, totaling around 200 films and video productions from Canada and the world. One panelist points to the fest’s recently inked four-year deal with Netflix in support of queer Canadian moviemakers as a promising move, adding, “It’s another queer fest that’s really important on the circuit. I actually prefer going to Inside Out over TIFF. They’re highly curatorial with their selections and have a great Canadian sidebar, so nurturing local talent is important to them.” Inside Out funds programs aimed at creating LGBTQ- themed programming and emerging art- ist-focused Initiatives like Youth Day, a day devoted to students and educational groups. This fest also brings the fun—in the form of raucous after-parties, tea dances, and drag shows.

    The Artis Center in Naples, Fl is really extraordinary. It’s the hub of performing arts, music, and film in Southwest Florida. It’s the Boston Museum of Fine Arts and Boston Symphony all in one – with art and entertainment for all ages. One of the things that impressed me most was the cultural campus for children, with programs for art and music in the form of summer camps, infusing art and music (and the importance of it) at a young age.
