People Like Us: World Premiere at MEC Vancouver on October 14
On October 14, MEC Vancouver will host the world premiere of People Like Us, a short film that explores queer identity in mountain towns and the snowsports world.
Directed by Ryan Collins and produced by Nat Segal, People Like Us follows Ryan as he connects with the queer community of Revelstoke, BC, seeking their opinions, stories, and relationship with mountain culture. The film aims to build perspective into what it is like to be queer in a rural setting.
After moving to Revelstoke in 2020 to work in the mountain sports industry, Ryan felt welcomed, building a solid friend group and work opportunities. Despite this warm reception, he started to feel something was missing: a connection with people like him.
As Ryan actively reaches out to members of the local queer community, he begins to build a better understanding of the shared queer experience. In doing so, People Like Us celebrates the existence of queer folks in non-urban settings and shows that healthy queer communities can flourish in small towns.
