#ygkChallenge: Reelout Queer Film and Video Festival

Reelout Queer Film and Video FestivalWelcome to Kingstonist’s weekly challenge, dare, resolution or whatever you prefer to call it. Each week we establish a new and ambitious community goal, encouraging our readers, followers, friends and families to step out of their comfort zones and do something great, and hopefully a little out of the ordinary. Consider this your official and personal invitation to join us in completing a small but meaningful achievement. By taking part in this community-wide initiative, we hope to make Kingston a slightly better place to live, work and play. And of course, we also hope that you will feel proud of your contribution and achievement.

This week’s challenge encourages you to:

Get out and enjoy the Reelout Queer Film and Video Festival! In case you missed our comprehensive festival guide yesterday, and the wash of Breakfast Club-inspired posters on display in storefronts across the city, here’s yet another reminder that the 14th annual celebration of queer independent media arts kicks off this weekend. This year’s eleven day festival boasts over 80 international works, Q&A sessions and panel discussions with select filmmakers, and a host of parties and social outings for you to mix and mingle.  With single tickets selling for as little as $9, and festival passes practically being given away at $89 a pop, this local film festival is truly affordable and not to be missed.  To help you on your way, we’re giving away a pair of tickets to TRANS (screening on February 4th at 6:30pm) to the first person who submits a comment to this challenge.

Sign up and commit to completing this week’s challenge by commenting below with an “I’m in“, “challenge accepted“, “en garde” or something along those lines. Further, help us spread the word via Twitter and Facebook by sharing the link and encouraging the participation of your friends and family. By joining together in our weekly challenge, we hope to accomplish big and positive things for our community.
