Melbourne Queer Film Festival shifts to early summer dates

Begone sad March! Behold the first flush of summer in the crisp Melbourne evenings.

The Melbourne Queer Film Festival (MQFF) has shifted its dates from March to November, to occupy a different position in the ceremonial calendar both for the LBQTI community and the larger life of the city.

In 2021, the festival will run from Thursday 18 November to Monday 29 November 2021. At eleven days and around 60 features, it is the largest LGBTIQ+ film festival in Australia.
