RAINBOW VISIONS is Edmonton’s only LGBTQ film festival!

SAVE BIG: Earlybird submissions deadline is JUNE 30th! Submit today for LOWEST PRICES of the season. Made in ALBERTA films pay NO SUBMISSION FEE!
Our inaugural edition featured such acclaimed films as: NAZ & MAALIK, TANGERINE, THE GLAMOUR & THE SQUALOR, CLAMBAKE, THE AMINA PROFILE, and our Audience Award Winner, BOY MEETS GIRL. The first year also welcomed guests such as iconic Canadian ‘punk’ filmmaker Bruce LaBruce, and we presented an archival screening of the 1960’s new wave classic, A TOUT PRENDRE.
This year, for the first time, we are accepting submissions. As with our sister festival, NORTHWESTFEST, our mandate is to find and showcase new & emerging filmmaking talent, and we will be programming this year’s edition almost entirely from the submissions we receive!
RAINBOW VISIONS, along with its sister festival, NORTHWESTFEST (formerly ‘Global Visions’), are the 2 annual festivals produced by the Global Visions Festival Society.
