Toronto's 2SLGBTQ+ film festival is taking place online this year due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. Still aiming to be an international home and incubator for 2SLGBTQ+ emerging and established filmmakers, the festival will include themed programming spotlights alongside its film line-up. It opens with Natalie Morales’ Language Lessons and closes with Bradley Bell's Alone Together.

The festival runs from 27 May to 6 June.
