The 2019 Toronto LGBT Film Festival will take place May 23 to June 2, 2019. 

Inside Out volunteers are the coolest. Like, the coolest! They help us challenge attitudes and change lives by donating valuable time and amazing skills to help make our work happen. Plus, volunteering is a great way to meet people, gain new skills and see movies! 

In exchange for volunteering at our festival, all volunteers receive:

  • One-of-a-kind t-shirt!
  • Screening vouchers to see films! 
  • The opportunity to meet and greet some of the most interesting queer filmmakers, film lovers, community members and community leaders! 
  • The experience of working in a fabulous team putting together the largest queer film festival in Canada! 
  • Post-festival wrap-up party, just for you!
