Reel Pride Winnipeg
The Winnipeg Gay and Lesbian Film Society, Inc. was registered as a non-profit incorporation under Manitoba statutes on September 20, 1985. Between 1985 and 1989 the group organized monthly film series, bringing to Manitoba audiences gay and lesbian films otherwise not seen in Winnipeg. These were advertised to Winnipeg's Gay & Lesbian community by mail outs.
The first film festival was produced in 1987 as a joint project of the Winnipeg Gay and Lesbian Film Society and Plug In, Inc. and named "Counterparts." All of the festivals that followed have been produced by the Society.
Since 2000 the festivals have been known by the name "Reel Pride." 2015 marked the Society's 30th year and 28th Reel Pride Film Festival.
