Toronto's 25th Annual Inside Out LGBT Film Festival Expands Lineup
Next month, Toronto's annual Inside Out LGBT Film Festival will return for its 25th edition. As could be expected, the festival boasts an enormous lineup. Today (April 23), the full list of films has been unveiled.

We've now learned that the fest will close out with the world premiere of Confessions of a Serial Monogamist. The film was co-written and co-directed by John Mitchell and Christina Zeidler, and stars Diane Flacks, Vanessa Dunn (of Vag Halen), Gavin Crawford and Sabrina Jalees. Rough clips of the film were shown as works in progress during a panel at Inside Out in 2014.

In addition, the festival has expanded its lineup with 26 more films spread across various programs.

This year, the event will introduce their Spotlight on Canada series. Films in that category include The Amina Profile, which documents a Montreal woman's attempt to rescue her girlfriend in Syria; The Turn, which follows a mother's love of her transgendered daughter and the pair's bond over roller derby; and Transfixed, a documentary about gender reassignment surgery. The Canadian film series is rounded out with the films GuidanceTwo 4 One and What We Have.
