Submissions have opened for the QueerDOC film festival, set to screen in September at the Dendy in Newtown.
Queer Screen general manager Jain Moralee said she hoped this year’s festival would include a larger-than-ever selection of Australian documentaries.
“We’ve already received quite a few submissions from all over the world, so we’re looking to get submissions from more Australian filmmakers,” Moralee told Sydney Star Observer.
“It’s shaping up to be a great festival, but we want more Australian voices — local stories are really engaging for local audiences.”
Filmmakers are encouraged to submit feature-length and short documentaries, cinéma vérité and even mockumentaries before entries close on July 3.
“Really, the only parameters for submission are that the filmmakers themselves, or their documentary subjects, should be queer. Queer itself is quite a broad term, so we want a lot of diversity,” Moralee said.
