The 30th edition of Queer Screen’s Mardi Gras Film Festival is set to be one of the biggest ever, with 166 films screening across more than 100 sessions, both in cinema and on-demand. This year’s theme, ‘Awaken your Senses,’ will give moviegoers an opportunity to reflect on the impact and significance of this event in the world of queer storytelling.
Formed in 1993 by a group of queer filmmakers and curators, Queer Screen has been ‘dedicated to promoting positive change in film culture in Australia’, and beyond. Festival Director Lisa Rose is looking forward to this year’s event. ‘We at Queer Screen are incredibly proud of our impact,’ she says.
