From romance to comedies, documentaries to dramas, and everything in between, Queer Screen delivers a huge 26th Mardi Gras Film Festival with an exciting array of diverse films that showcase the LGBTQI experience.

The 2019 festival will feature a raft of Australian and Sydney premieres from all corners of the globe. Highlights include the hotly anticipated Sauvage, a powerful portrait of a gay hustler on the streets of France that sent shockwaves through Cannes for its unrelenting and visceral imagery.

Snapshots will transport you back to the 60's and a sexy secret love affair between two women, whilst Freelancers Anonymous fills the screen with a fabulous, mostly female cast in a hilarious screwball comedy without the heteronormativity.

One of the many documentary highlights comes to us from Tonga, as we meet the incredible Leitis In Waiting and their spirited flight for equality; and don't miss the sparkling documentary that raises the curtain and shines a spotlight on acclaimed playwright and LGBTQI activist Terence McNally.

The teaser films listed above and more are on sale now, ahead of the launch of the full festival on January 9.
