The Fairy Tales International Gay & Lesbian Film Festival is an annual event held at the end of May in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.

It is the only LGBT film festival in Alberta.[1]

Started in 1999, the Fairy Tales International Gay and Lesbian Film Festival has three main objectives:[2] to bring a rich selection of seldom-seen films to the Calgary and Southern Alberta region audience; to support the work of local, national and international filmmakers; to create an atmosphere of respect and tolerance, within and outside, of the gay and lesbian community through culture.

The festival was founded by volunteers at the Calgary Society of Independent Filmmakers, however Fairy Tales evolved into its own organization through the creation in 2003 of the Fairytales Presentation Society.[3] The Fairytales Presentation Society is a registered Canadian charity.
