Queer Screen will host encore screenings of two of the most popular films from this year’s Mardi Gras Film Festival.

I Can’t Think Straight and Patrik, Age 1.5 will screen at the Palace Academy Twin on June 3.

I Can’t Think Straight, a charming romantic comedy that pits star-crossed lovers against cross-cultural confusion, will screen at 6.30pm.

When London-based Jordanian Tala meets British Indian Leyla it’s love and lust at first sight, however, neither of the women have had a same-sex relationship before, and there are traditional Indian parents and a Palestinian wedding to contend with.

Chances of happiness seem grim for this couple, but not all is lost as their friends hatch a plot to get them together.

Patrik, Age 1.5, the story of happily married Swedish gay couple Sven and Goran who dream of adopting a child, will screen at 9pm.

The couple come across one problem as they go through the adoption paperwork -” an unfortunate typo at the adoption agency puts a comma in the wrong place and instead of a baby boy aged 1.5, they are sent a homophobic 15-year-old street kid.

This is a smart, moving and very funny film.
Both films scored highly on the audience poll at this year’s film festival.
