For it’s 16th year, Rainbow Reels Queer and Trans Film Festival is back with 4 days of film, art, comedy, workshops, parties and community. Queer and Trans community groups, artists, and individuals have collaborated for a diverse and engaging weekend. Workshops that examine the crossover of gender, sexuality, and art. Comedy shows guaranteed to bring really gay laughs. Discussion groups focused on the intersections of queerness and race. Films ranging from two-spirit love stories to lesbian dinner parties.
The festival is a project of the Waterloo Public Interest Research group and has been since 2000. What started up as a small student-run event, screening films at the University of Waterloo, has since expanded and grown into an important community-wide event.
