The Vancouver Queer Film Fest marked its 20th anniversary by celebrating another community landmark: Little Sister’s 25th anniversary.

The festival aired Little Sister’s vs Big Brother, a documentary about the bookstore’s censorship battles with Canadian border officials. The film follows the store’s owners as they took their case to the Supreme Court of Canada.

A panel discussion followed the film, featuring guest speakers Jim Deva, Janine Fuller and filmmaker Aerlyn Weissman.
