Invest in Your Community

When you invest in Inside Out, you impact the LGBTQ community. 

As one of Canada's most trusted and vital LGBTQ arts organizations, Inside Out believes in utilizing the transformative power of LGBTQ film to collectively document our past, highlight our present and nurture our future. 

Your support helps Inside Out to:

  • Foster creativity, filmmakers and talent
  • Document and share our LGBTQ history
  • Elevate diverse LGBTQ voices and stories 
  • Engage, empower, educate and entertain our communities
  • Create a fun and welcoming place to celebrate our stories

Your donation today will also ensure that Inside Out can continue to improve access for LGBTQ people who may experience barriers to participation. As our main charitable initiative, Inside Out for All provides ticket and pass giveaways to community groups, free matinees for youth/seniors, and accessibility supports such as ASL interpretation and closed captioning.

Thank you for your support!

Inside Out is committed to making sure our programming is accessible to all who wish to participate. As part of our Inside Out for All initiative, we will:

* Provide LGBTQ youth and others in our community with free access to online resources and support through our nationwide Online Catalogue

* Distribute up to 2,000 free tickets through our community partners

* Reserve VIP seats at our Toronto festival for newcomers to Canada and others who may experience barriers to access

* Support Deaf and Hard of Hearing audiences through ASL interpretation and captioning of films

* Make our screening and event venues physically accessible


The Leadership Circle brings together a special group of supporters who wish to champion Inside Out’s goal of challenging attitudes and changing lives through the sharing of our communities’ stories on film. The philanthropic support of $1000 or more from our Leadership Circle Members shows an investment in the future of Inside Out, LGBTQ filmmakers, and the communities we serve.


This fund is aimed at supporting the career development of female and non-binary filmmakers. Launched with the generous support of Martha McCain in its inaugural year (2018) the RE:Focus Fund provided micro-grants to 23 fillmmakers, giving them the opportunity to attend the Toronto Festival to present their work and take part in professional development. To date, over 30% of those who took part in this program in 2018 have gone on to win juried awards and/or advance new projects.


Supporting an award or screening is a wonderful way to show your support for queer film and encourage the creation of new works from diverse LGBTQ voices. Sponsoring an award in honour or in memory of someone can also be an incredibly meaningful way to celebrate their courage, creativity, passion, and life.

If you’d like to learn more about any of these initiatives, please contact Deanna Bickford at any time at 416.977.6847 X23.
