The 25th annual LGBT Film Festival, one of the largest in the world, returns to Toronto on May 21. Through May 31, enjoy 11 days of film screenings that showcase themes relevant to the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered community. Featuring older favorites and newer films alike, the world-class event will span a variety of genres, subject matters, and cinematic styles. In addition to exploring sexuality on screen, the festival also features LGBT filmmakers.
Be sure to catch the highly anticipated Sundance motion picture “Grandma” starring Lily Tomlin. Before it’s even playing at a theater near you, the dark comedy is already generating a bit of buzz for next year’s Academy Awards. Showcasing independent American and international films alike, the event celebrates diversity and innovation in cinema.
