By Brendan Lee

Vancouver Queer Film Festival
August 9-August 19 


Support ground-breaking, genre-defining filmmaking at this year’s jam-packed Vancouver Queer Film Festival. The line-up oozes talent and celebrates diversity through all avenues, with the critically acclaimed The Miseducation of Cameron Post rounding out the closing night. Taking place at a few different venues across the city, tickets are available online, on location at Little Sister’s or Black Dog Video, and at the door!

 

BlackkKlansman
August 10

As the first African-American detective in the Colorado Springs Police Department, Ron Stallworth leads an infiltration of the Ku Klux Klan. Legendary filmmaker Spike Lee returns with his next exploitative, thought-provoking message to the world. One way or another, this film is bound to turn heads.

A Prayer Before Dawn
August 10 


Prepare for a gut punch. A Prayer Before Dawn tells the unbelievable true story of Billy Moore, a young English boxer incarcerated in two of Thailand’s most dangerous prisons who must fight his way out. It’s a genre film that packs all the more venom by drawing from real-life events.

 

Searching
August 24 


We live our lives on the internet, but how easy would it be for us to simply disappear? 16-year-old Margot Kim vanishes, and her father, David (played by John Cho), slips, cracks, and crumbles to pieces as the only leads he can find are missing links in jumbled streams of pictures, videos, and conversations pieced together online, causing him to question whether he ever really knew her at all.

 

The Little Stranger
August 31 


Lenny Abrahamson (Room, Frank) teams up with Domhnall Gleeson once more, and this time tells the haunted story of Hundreds Hall, a decrepit nursing home in Warwickshire, England. This period-piece drama hints at unspeakable horrors, promising to unravel you the deeper it gets.
