Rainbow Reels Queer and Trans Film Festival

The Rainbow Reels Queer and Trans Film Festival is an annual LGBTQ film festival in Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario.[1]

First staged in 2001,[2] the festival was launched by WPIRG and staged primarily at the University of Waterloo's Davis Centre.[3] It subsequently expanded off-campus, with most films screening at the Princess Twin theatre,[4] and became an independent event with its own separate organizing committee in the early 2010s.[5]

In addition to film, the festival also schedules a selection of live theatrical and musical performances.[6]
