Executive Director Welcome Message

MQFF – we do movies differently. That’s right, MQFF has been showing LGBTIQ-themed films long before they were picked up by mainstream cinemas, and for many of the films, our Festival provides the only chance for Melbourne audiences  to see them as they were designed to be seen –  on the big screen. 

The 27th Melbourne Queer Film Festival will be held 16 - 27 March 2017, and will feature more than 120 curated LGBTIQ-themed features, shorts and documentaries from Australia and the world.  In addition to the films we will continue to host panels, filmmaker Q&A's, workshops and party events.

All this would not be possible without the support of our partners, sponsors, private donors (Sweethearts), MQFF members and audience.   Thanks for helping us keep Melbourne Queer Film Festival, "Proudly Different."
