What good is a filmmaking competition if there’s no one around to show the films to? Join us at the Isabel Bader Centre on Thursday, January 23rd for an evening of cinematic entertainment!

Last weekend almost 100 students picked up their cameras and hit the streets to create short films. Working in groups and following the theme (clichés), the participants had 72 hours to write, shoot, edit, and put together these works of art.

So whether you’re a film fanatic, friend of a participant, or just trying to warm up for when you’re invited to the Oscars, this gala is for you. Dust off those suits and bring out the pearl earrings, because this will be an evening you won’t forget.


- Doors open @ 6PM (The screenings will start at 7 so make sure to come in beforehand to mingle and visit the photo booth!

- Admission is FREE

- There will be a cash bar

- Dress code: FORMAL

Reelout poster


Are you getting the winter blahs?  Do you tell yourself/your partner/your pet/your friends/your family that there’s nothing to do in this city? Well get off the couch girlfriend because we’re painting the town QUEER January 30th to February 8th, 2020 for the 21st annual Reelout Queer Film Festival!  Advance tickets are now on sale at TicketScene. You can buy tickets for individual programs (there are 18 different programs over 10 days!) or submerge yourself into IndieMovie Luxury by getting a Festival Pass and that way you have the option to see and play at every event!  Are you timid about coming by yourself?  We hear that from so many relieved people year after year who muster the courage to attend a film at Reelout solo and end up meeting people who are all here to have a great time.  We also hear from our allies who don’t identify as LGBTQ2S+ who want to attend but don’t want to take away a seat from “family”, please know Reelout would not have sustained itself for 21 years on the patronage of the queer community alone.  This is a QUEER FILM Festival not a film festival exclusive to Queer People.

Go to our TICKET PAGE for more info on tickets and passes or go directly to our TicketScene site if you know what’s good!

If you’re looking for more information on what’s being screened, then hop over to our FILMS section.  All programs are listed chronologically by date and if you click on the name of the program, you can read more about the movie!
