Thursday February 16, 2016 - The ninth annual Queer West Film Queer West Film 2017 Oct 6-8 @ Revue Cinema, has been cancelled.
We can tell you from experience that nothing is more frustrating than six trained volunteers who decided on their own, to discard the plan which had work for eight years, for one of their own. Just because someone volunteers does not give them the right to do whatever they want. Everyone should be pulling their weight, not pushing their weight around. The volunteers were fired, throwing the festival into chaos on Feb 16, 2017.
We should have minimum of six to 10 general volunteers to manage a festival of this size. There is simply not enough time to train new volunteers at this late date. This is the reason for cancellation; we will pay a few bills, and returned the TD Bank funding check on Monday February 20 and submission fees refunded to all directors that submitted in 2017. The Board is putting the film festival to sleep for a couple of years.
