With 90+ films in the program and over 50% being available to stream on-demand Australia wide, there are so many ways you can experience Queer Screen’s 28th Mardi Gras Film Festival.
The festival kicks off in style, with opening night film Dating Amber, under the stars at Moonlight Cinema in Centennial Park. A wonderful film about a friendship between a gay man and a lesbian in 1990s Ireland.
Closing the festival is Rūrangi. An incredibly inclusive film about a gay trans man that recently won the audience award at the largest LGBTQI+ film festival in the world, Frameline. It is full of heart, humour and authenticity.
Other highlights include: acting powerhouses Colin Firth and Stanley Tucci in the moving Supernova; the very timely The Obituary of Tunde Johnson that brings to the forefront the issue of racism and police brutality, the incredible chemistry of rising star Vanessa Kirby and Katherine Waterston in The World to Come, epic love story I Carry You With Me from Mexico and one of the most celebrated films of the last year Suk Suk.
