movieRunning from November 13-24, the Sydney Intercultural Film Festival is Sydney’s biggest free cinema event, with more than 100 screenings across the city – including a few queer treats. One such highlight is I Am Gay and Muslim, which bravely tackles the subject of gay rights in the Islamic world. Directed by first-time filmmaker Chris Belloni, the intimate documentary follows several gay Moroccan men as they explore how their experiences, struggles and sense of identity have been, and continue to be, shaped by Islamic religion and culture.
