i+n@home / QBIPOC

We stand in solidarity with Black and Indigenous communities and People of Colour, in particular QBIPOC storytellers that have greatly contributed to 33 years of the image+nation Festival. 

image+nation’s mission is to promote and prepare contemporary and future generations of queer storytellers while offering a platform for sharing LGBTQ2 stories and lives to encourage self-identification, authenticity, empathy and connection. 

At this time we offer our platform to QBIPOC storytellers. Here are films, documentaries and webseries written/ directed/ produced/ starring and importantly, telling Black,Indigenous and POC queer stories – both factual and fictional. Some are free and others for rental, with the criteria that the funds go directly to the creators and producers and not corporate networks

New titles will be added regularly so check back often and support QBIPOC storytellers by watching and sharing.
