VQFF is proud to welcome Thirza Cuthand (Plains Cree & Scot) as this year’s Visiting Artist In Residence. For over 20 years, Cuthand has been producing videos that tackle issues of sexuality, madness, youth, love, and race. Her short film 2 Spirit Introductory Special $19.99 screened to acclaim at the 2017 Festival. She is this year’s winner of the Anniversary Media Art Award at the Vancouver Queer Film Festival.

VQFF 2018 opens at the Vancouver Playhouse with the Canadian premiere of Yen Tan’s 1985, a critically-observed period piece brought to life by an acclaimed cast including Cory Michael Smith, Michael Chiklis, Virginia Madsen, and Jamie Chung.

The Festival’s Centrepiece Gala Film is the dramatic comedy White Rabbit co-written by and starring comedian Vivian Bang, who takes us on the often awkward and hilarious journey of a queer Korean American performance artist struggling to be heard and seen in modern Los Angeles.
