Qaleidoscope in Victoria: Queer Film on Tour

QALEIDOSCOPE: Refraction, Abstraction & Play features Canadian QTBIPOC films that explore, question and play with identity to propose and investigate diverse ways of looking at sexuality, gender and race.

TICKETS will be available at the door by donation, suggested sliding scale $5-10, no one will be turned away.
ALL SCREENINGS ARE RESTRICTED to people 18 years of age or older.

QALEIDOSCOPE: Refraction, Abstraction & Play features Canadian QTBIPOC films that explore, question and play with identity to propose and investigate diverse ways of looking at sexuality, gender and race.

Images, characters, ideas, and realities collide in fantastical, personal, and playful ways. Experimental, artistically rigorous, heavyhitting, and thoughtful, the films involve issues such as feminism, race, racism, class, identity politics, community, colonization, conceptual art, politics, religion, violence, popular culture, gender, sexuality, and transgressive and subversive play. A decidedly tongue-in-cheek disposition and sensibility inject the tour with moments of intelligent, incisive humour.

QALEIDOSCOPE promotes the artistic vision of QTBIPOC Canadian media artists whose work might not otherwise be shown, so this is a great chance to see these works up close and in person.

Open Space and Queer City Cinema respectfully acknowledge that this event is occurring on unceded First Nations territory. The City of Victoria and the surrounding areas lie on the territories of the Coast Salish and Lekwungen-speaking peoples, including the Esquimalt, Songhees, and W̱SÁNEĆ First Nations.
