In numerous countries worldwide, LGBTQ+ individuals encounter discrimination, persecution, and even criminalization merely for being themselves. In the face of these adversities, queer filmmakers have emerged as formidable storytellers illuminating the struggles and victories of the LGBTQ+ community. Under the Radar aims to honour and uplift these voices living in oppressive regimes or enduring forced displacement. Our goal is to be a bridge, which leads to open dialogue, empathy, awareness and opportunities for long term impact. 

Coming up:


June 7, 2024 @ 8:30PM • in-person ONLY

Join us for an unforgettable evening  at  the Radical Queer Festival , Brûlances, taking place at the Centre Culturel George Vanier in Montreal. We are fearlessly  presenting the anthology film Map Your Love and our latest trans-local video collaboration, Exquisite Pride.

This program features works shot on smartphones by  fifteen emerging queer filmmakers from Africa including refugees and diaspora participants. Through non-linear compositions, they explore the complexities of love, solidarity, self-acceptance and sanctuary. The synergies between each vision create a powerful new collective voice  portraying authentic everyday life in marginalized communities.

For safety and privacy issues, unauthorized filming, photography, or recording of any kind is strictly prohibited. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation in maintaining a secure environment for all participants.


You can further support us by purchasing a monthly or yearly subscription or donate what-you-can ( details below ). Be the first to access our latest selection of Under-Represented Queer Cinema from the Global South.

All are welcome! Wheelchair accessible!

Address: 2450 Rue Workman, Montréal, QC H3J 1L8
