Join us as we take the best of the festival to the Blue Mountains and Canberra! Including The Divide, from out filmmaker, Catherine Corsini (Summertime, MGFF16 Opening Night) fresh from winning the Queer Palm Award at Cannes, 2021; animations, coming-of-age tales, comedy, documentaries and more in My Queer Career, Australia’s richest queer short film prize; a stirring portrait of a man repeatedly imprisoned for homosexuality in post-war Germany, and the relationship he slowly develops with his cellmate Viktor in Great Freedom, and a bunch of the best short films from all our packages in Best of MGFF22 Shorts.

We regret to advise that the Mardi Gras Film Festival screenings in the Blue Mountains this weekend (11 – 13 March) have been postponed until 20 – 22 May. Our wonderful venue Mount Vic Flicks is currently closed due to flood damage to the access roads to the cinema. Tickets are on sale for the new dates and current ticket holders have been informed of their options.

At Queer Screen, we are proud to present queer cinema from all over the world as part of our festivals. We understand that people have differing limits, but we’ve worked hard to provide appropriate content warnings for applicable films. That said, triggering themes are varied and can change from person to person, so if you need further information about the content of any of the films, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us and we’ll be happy to answer your questions.
