Queer Screen 31st Mardi Gras Film Festival will offer a rich tapestry of films that authentically represent the diverse spectrum of the LGBTQIA+ experience.

All the Colours of the World Are Between Black and White, winner of the Teddy Award at Berlinale, tells a modern-day Nigerian story of profound affection between two men, while Monica stars transgender actress Trace Lysette alongside Patricia Clarkson, unravelling the delicate tale of a fractured family.
Polarized, directed by Shamim Sarif, the much loved creator of I Can’t Think Straight and The World Unseen, explores familial and cultural expectations when two women cross paths in a rural Canadian town.
Mutt follows Feña’s rollercoaster journey through a whirlwind of emotions when people who had seemingly vanished from his life reappear after his transition.
