London Lesbian
Film Festival
2022

Feb 25th, 2022

Dear festival attendees, supporters, and filmmakers,

We are reaching out today to inform you that due to the ongoing covid-19 restrictions and the timing of the lifting of some restrictions it is not possible for our volunteer run committee to put on a festival this May 2022.  We are currently planning for a September 23rd to 25th 2022 weekend long festival with the possibility of a couple small pop up events and a drive in movie night between now and then.

As we said when this all began, this situation is unfortunate and presents some difficulties for our team going forward, but we remain passionate and invested in bringing our community together to celebrate lesbian identities and stories on screen. 

The health and well-being of our community, and the importance of this festival to each of you, remain our focus. 

Please know that you are all in our thoughts, we hope you are keeping safe and well, and we look forward to a time when we can gather safely and comfortably.

We will do our best to keep you up to date via email, our website LLFF.ca, and Facebook. 

Debi DeMille
President, LLFF Reeling Spinsters

Hangin’ at the Drive-In Details

Popcorn and concessions are available for purchase. You have the option to have them delivered to your car if you prefer. There are washrooms on site that are cleaned regularly. Please bring a mask and hand sanitizer to use in public areas.

We recommend dressing warmly and perhaps bringing a blanket because the nights are getting chilly.

You are able to sit in the back of your vehicle, or on a lawn chair outside, so long as you remain properly distanced from guests who are not in your covid-19 bubble.
This is a dog friendly venue. Your furry friend should be non-reactive and is required to be on a leash when outside of your car, in accordance with the Oxford Drive-In policy. BYO-Poop bag!

Please note: the drive-in is NOT located in London, Ontario. It is situated between London and Woodstock, just 12 minutes off of the 401.

Looking forward to seeing you there!

Be sure to follow us on social media. We’d love to hear from you.

Congratulations to our LLFF Audience Choice Award Winners 2019
