Thank You From the Personal Besties

We’ve accounted for all Inside Out staff who participated in the 2015 Pride and Remembrance Run this. All are safe and sound.

As workers in the LGBT arts sector we’re not renowned for our athletic abilities but, with your support as the wind in our sails, the Inside Out Personal Besties succeeded in having fun and running/walking/crawling across the finish line.

Thanks to your support, Inside Out will be the beneficiary of $50,000 raised through the Run—and placed fourth in the overall team fundraising!

Our funds will be used to expand Inside Out’s year-round community engagement and education activities including presenting year-round screenings in under-represented neighbourhoods outside of the Toronto downtown core, launching our revamped New Visions video production program for first-time filmmakers, and establishing an in-house screening room that will enable community organizations, students and curators to access Inside Out’s archive of 25 years of queer film.

We’ve been honoured by your support this Pride and grateful to have worked with all our sponsors, Personal Besties team members and the amazing volunteers at the Pride and Remembrance Run.

Have a wonderful summer!

We hope everyone is having a great summer now that the rainy June weather seems to be behind us. The Inside Out office is open throughout the summer but, after the hard work and success of our 25th Anniversary Festival, July and August will be a bit more quiet as staff take holidays.

We also bid a fond farewell and good luck to our Marketing and Community Manager Diana Khong who is relocating to New York City. We hope to have a new member of the Inside Out team in place before the end of August, but in the meantime, we’ll be taking the month off from our E-newsletter. Any late-breaking Inside Out news and queer film gossip will be posted to our Inside Out Facebook page so if you have not ‘liked us’, head over to Facebook and join in the fun!

Thanks again to all of our audience members, volunteers, supporters and members who contributed to a memorable Festival this past May.

Stay tuned for details of upcoming plans and year-round events.

Ottawa LGBT Film Festival | October 22 to 25, 2015
