‘My Old Ass’ to Open Toronto’s Inside Out Film Festival

by UNN Feed

Inside Out, Toronto’s LGBTQ+ film festival, has revealed the full program lineup for its 34th edition, including its opening night selection, My Old Ass, from Canadian director Megan Park.

My Old Ass, which debuted at the Sundance Film Festival where is was acquired by Amazon MGM, follows an 18 year-old Elliott (Maisy Stella) who meets her 39-year-old self (Aubrey Plaza) who warns her about falling in love.

Karen Knox’s sophomore feature We Forgot To Break Up, adapted from the novel Heidegger Stairwell by Canadian author Kayt Burgess, will close the fest. Elsewhere in the lineup is Susie Yankou’s Sisters, which is this year’s 2024 RE:Focus Gala selection and Anthony Schatteman’s debut feature Young Hearts acting as the The Centerpiece Gala film.

“We are thrilled to welcome audiences back for the 34th annual Inside Out 2SLGBTQ+ Film Festival,” says Elie Chivi, Co-Head and Executive Director. “As the film festival landscape continues to evolve, we are incredibly grateful to our members, donors, and partners as well as our queer filmmaking family, for their continued loyalty and support, and without whom, this festival would not be possible. On the eve of Inside Out’s 35th anniversary in 2025, it’s a privilege to continue to bring the community together to share in the magic of queer cinema.”

“We are honoured and humbled that Inside Out continues to provide a space for celebration of 2SLGBTQ+ stories, a space for professional development opportunities for queer creators, and a space to share experiences and network so that we can help foster future creative collaborations with our alumni and future alumni,” added Co-Head and Artistic Director, Andrew Murphy.
