The Queer Media Database Canada/Quebec is made up of a cross-Canada network of researchers, creators, institutions and distributors who share a common goal of promoting access to exhibition opportunities and knowledge exchange for new and historic film and video works, makers, and institutions.
Ever aware of the importance of intersectoral exchanges between the academic, cultural, community, and private sector milieus, the QMDCQ has assembled an Advisory Group that will ensure the perennial cross-country and multi-regional breadth of the catalogue and its initiatives. Our Board members, whose backgrounds represent extensive pedagogical, academic, artistic, and community-based bodies of work, will take part in outreach events planned for the project's start-up year.
