As part of the newly expanded Youth Day on Friday, May 26, youth participants will get an interactive introduction to Canadian LGBTQ film from an inspiring panel of emerging professional filmmakers. This group of acclaimed young directors, performers, and producers will be led in conversation by Inside Out Programming Committee Member Allia McLeod (Huffington Post Canada), as they discuss their personal journeys, professional developments, and what it means to be a Canadian queer filmmaker today.

The panelists include Ben Lewis (actor: Degrassi, The Handmaid's Tale; director: Apart from Everything), Sarah Rotella (director: Almost Adults, Indiewire's 2015 project of the year), Kyle Reaume (director: What About Shelley, winner of 2016 Inside Out BravoFACT pitch competition), Gein Wong (director: Jimmy Does Datingfilmmaker mentor in Inside Out's New Visions program), and Stephanie Markowitz (director: Gabey and Mike: A Jewish Summer Camp Love Story).
