Accessibility

All events during the festival are free. Films are free for students and unwaged folks, $5 or pay what you can for everyone else. Bus tickets are available upon request.

The theatre, main lobby, and café at Princess twin cinemas are wheelchair accessible. Regrettably the lower lobby is only accessible via stairs. The Student Life Centre, the location of our Thursday night film, is fully accessible, as is The Royal Canadian Legion, the location of our Once Upon a Time Dance Party, and The KW Little Theatre, the location of Our Tales: Queer Lives and Expression through Performance.

  • We will post about possibly triggering things in the films, and announce them before the film, giving people a few minutes to exit if needed
  • All films will have English subtitles
  • We will have ASL interpreters present at the opening reception, performance night, Queer Families Day, and the introductions to each film

Washroom Information

  • Princess Twin Cinemas has one gender-neutral, single-stall, accessible restroom on the first floor and gendered, multi-stall restrooms in the basement.
  • Information for other venues coming ASAP

Allergies Prevention

We will have free food at many of our events. All food will be nut free and vegetarian. We will have vegan and gluten free options. Food will be clearly labelled.
We hope to have the festival be scent and nut free. We expect everyone attending the festival to be respectful of this — for more information on how to be low-scent/scent-free, please check out here and here.

 

Childcare Service

We will have childcare available on Sunday, May 8 during all programming. Other childcare is available throughout the festival on request – we’re happy to help so please email if we can assist!

 

As organizers of this event, we will try to provide an environment free of harassment, discrimination, and oppression. We recognize that the accessibility of a space can be impacted by the behaviour of the people present in that space and, obviously, cannot make an accessible space happen on our own. Please help us create a really exciting space by:

  • Refraining from wearing scented things or bringing food containing nuts to the event
  • Whenever possible, keeping aisles and hallways clear at least three feet to ensure greater mobility
  • Respecting the use of gender-neutral pronouns and checking in with people about how they identify (e.g. she/he/they) before making assumptions
  • Being mindful that children may be present throughout the weekend
  • Respecting each other’s boundaries and not making assumptions about anyone’s level of comfort with physical contact
  • Being conscious of the language that you use and being mindful that your behaviour and language impact other people
  • Being receptive if someone tells you that your behaviour or language is hurtful, inappropriate, problematic, etc.
  • Being conscious of the shared space, and looking out for each other

Letting us know if there are other ways we could make it more accessible for you!
