FilmFest

Melbourne Queer Film Festival

15 March 2018 - 25 March 2018

Australia’s largest and longest-running queer film festival, MQFF presents more than 100 films from across the world, showcasing the best in LGBTI features, shorts and documentaries over 12 days each March at Melbourne’s world-class Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) located in Federation Square.

The future of queer cinema is looking healthy and as they head into their next 25 years, MQFF will continue to play a vital role in connecting film-makers to audiences and to showcasing the best, the innovative, the entertaining, the challenging and the interesting.

MQFF brings more than the best of queer cinema to Melbourne audiences.  2016 is proving to be a great year for local film-makers and the Festival will continue to champion local and emerging talent through prizes and screening opportunities in addition to supporting industry development through workshops and industry days (think Queer, Camera, Action!). Importantly MQFF also plays a very real role in providing access to queer cinema and stories to various youth and community groups, and we will continue to stimulate discussion on relevant issues through our panel and community events.
