keep calm, stay queer: the 2021 queer screen film fest is here!
From Thursday 16 September to Sunday 26 September, the 9th Queer Screen Film Fest will showcase documentaries and narrative feature films from 17 different countries in 18 different spoken languages – and you can watch them all from the comfort of your living room.
Due to the ongoing impacts of the pandemic, the festival is, quite conveniently, bringing the world to the small screens of Australians who cannot currently travel.
‘Everyone in our community has been impacted by the pandemic in some way and we are delighted to create an online Festival to help us through these times,’ says Festival Director Lisa Rose.
‘We are very thankful to the Producers, Sales Agents and Distributors who agreed to let us share their work on smaller screens, and grateful we can bring some fantastic new and also much-loved encores to people all around the country.’
In addition to the on-demand program, Queer Screen has a number of live free events scheduled including filmmaker Q&As and panels; the Halfway Hangout, where people can meet virtually to chat about the films; and short film competition, Queer Screen Pitch Off.
Tickets available at queerscreen.org.au or via the Queer Screen app, or call (02) 9280 1533 to book. Discounted tickets available for Queer Screen members.
