For nearly three decades, Inside Out has brought Toronto’s 2SLGBTQ+ community together in celebration of the best queer film from Canada and around the world.

RBC is proud to sponsor Canada’s largest 2SLGBTQ+ film festival, Inside Out. For the past 31 years, this festival has been challenging attitudes, changing lives, and inspiring us all through the power of film. As presenting sponsor for the 13th year, RBC has seen this festival showcase some of the most compelling, thought-provoking and inspiring LGBTQ+ cinema in the world.
Tuesday’s double feature includes movies entitled Sweetheart and Beyto
Sweetheart will be preceded by the short film Pitoc e Icinakosian and will be followed by Beyto.
In Sweetheart, A.J., a socially awkward teen, has just arrived at a coastal holiday park with her mom, her two sisters, and her older sister’s boyfriend. Their crime? Being painfully normal and having little to no understanding of how hard it is to be A.J.
As she is dragged from beach day to magic show to family dinner, A.J.’s only respite is the occasional glimpse of Isla, the cute lifeguard patrolling the park. When Isla starts paying attention to A.J., A.J. has to deal with the potential of having her summer dreams come true.
Beyto is presented in Swiss German and Turkish, with English subtitles. Adapted from a novel by Swiss-Kurdish writer Yusuf Yesilöz, Beyto, which won the Prix du Public audience award at Switzerland’s Solothurn Film Festival, wrestles with the tension between cultures, and between a family’s sense of honour and a person’s need to be true to themselves.
