Image+Nation film festival continues in Montreal

Oldest gay and lesbian festival in Canada

The 24th Image+Nation LGBT film festival continues in Montreal.

Weekend, the breakout gay film of the year, is screening on Nov 3. The British film, directed by Andrew Haigh, tells the story of two blokes who meet at a club and end up spending a weekend talking, drinking, doing drugs and having sex. It’s gotten a lot of buzz and won the SXSW audience award in the Emerging Visions program.

Also screening is Leave It on the Floor, a musical film set in the Los Angeles gay ballroom scene. The film, directed by Sheldon Larry, was inspired, in part, by the 1990 voguing documentary Paris Is Burning.

See below for video reports on both films.
