There are over dozens of creative works to enjoy from Australia, as well as many countries around the world. Aside from the movies, the opening night is something to look forward to as other programs change each year.

The 30th Mardi Gras Film Festival is planned to be the biggest year yet, curated by Queer Screen’s Festival Director Lisa Rose, who celebrates her 6th consecutive year directing the festival. Lisa and the Queer Screen festival team have been busy creating an out-of-this-world lineup full of compelling romances, hilarious comedies, insightful documentaries, riveting dramas and everything in between.
