Stories. Art. Design.
SAD Mag is an independent Vancouver publication featuring stories, art, and design. Founded in 2009, we publish local contemporary and emerging artists AND WRITERS with a focus on inclusivity of voices and views.
While VQFF is still very much a film festival at it’s heart and core, the organizers also wanted to showcase the ways in which multi-disciplinary artists have adapted the medium. Come and learn something new, meet new people, and literally see for yourselves how these stories make you feel.
“I grew up with drag queens and it fascinated me for anyone to be able to go outside, be totally different, and be themselves, and be strong about it, with their heels on, walking tall. I always admired that. I always considered that to be a superhero feature, because superheroes always change their outfits and take on a different persona. I always equated the two in a lot of ways. The idea of gender being a performance is a really bold statement that I admire in drag queens as well.”
