Queer City Cinema Inc. (based in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada) was initiated in 1996 as a biennial film and video festival and has, over the years, come to program both film and performance art.

QALEIDOSCOPE was conceived to promote the artistic vision of queer/QTBIPOC Canadian filmmakers whose work might not otherwise be shown within these urban centres in Canada. These works, though falling under the banner of ‘queer’, remain relevant to the broader artistic communities in each of the five cities, not only because of the subject matter broached but also because many of the artists represented float amongst multiple disciplines within the context of the media, visual and performance arts. In this sense, artistic rigour and the fluidity of experience are paramount in the programming for the tour.

This will be the sixth tour of the Queer City Cinema’s programming. This tour follows QALEIDOSCOPE – QUEER FILM ON TOUR 2019 to Victoria, Yellowknife, Edmonton, Saskatoon and Thunder Bay. Past tours in 2001, 2002 2005 visited the cities of Edmonton, Saskatoon, and Winnipeg, while the tour in 2011 went coast to coast visiting the cities of Victoria, Edmonton, Saskatoon, Winnipeg, Halifax and St. Johns.
