This year’s MQFF will run from Thursday 14 March to Monday 25 March.
“The 2019 edition of MQFF is guaranteed to enthral whilst also casting a keen eye over LGBTIQ+ culture and its fascinating diversity,” said Program Director Spiro Economopoulos.
“These creative filmmakers have done a stellar job of portraying how smoking really does kill the vibe in important moments.”
“The LGBTI community has proven to be both resilient and fierce in the face of adversity, again and again.”
The Melbourne Queer Film Festival remains one of the world’s largest and longest running film festivals with an LGBTI focus. Matthew Wade caught up with the festival’s team to talk about the importance of queer film festivals and representing more diversity than audiences are exposed to in mainstream cinema.
