About Rainbow Reels

For 17 years Rainbow Reels Queer and Trans Film Festival has been bringing queer and trans centred art and film to Waterloo Region and Southwestern Ontario. At our annual festival you can expect to find film, art, comedy, workshops, parties and community. Each year we curate engaging and challenging art that aims to break down systemic oppression while celebrating our rainbow community.

Rainbow Reels is an entirely volunteer driven endeavour from a committee of community organizers and local artists. Previously funded through WPIRG at the University of Waterloo, Rainbow Reels is now an independent arts event run by a consensus based collective.
