who we are
A pioneer of LGBTQ cinema for over 30 years, image+nation is an annual eleven-day festival dedicated to sharing the stories and experiences of LGBTQ people. image +nation is the oldest festival of its kind in Canada, featuring locally and internationally produced films that strive to preserve the authenticity and diversity of LGBTQ voices. image+nation’s mission is to represent, protect and prepare the present and future generations of queer storytellers and media makers while building empathy through sharing stories with audiences here in Canada and throughout the world with new online initiatives. Currently, image+nation is also developing a series of educational and mentoring programs dedicated to nurturing emerging content, such as the I+N ProLab inaugurated in 2017.
