Bqff Opening Night 2016: 54: The Director's Cut says
Welcome to the 17th annual Brisbane Queer Film Festival.

This year, we invite you to celebrate with us in the historic New Farm Cinemas. This is the perfect setting to open with the cult classic 54: The Director's Cut - now released the way the director intended. It will screen with short film, Followers, directed by Tim Marshall.

Set against the backdrop of 70s hedonism in the infamous Studio 54, this Director’s Cut is the film Mark Christopher tried to release before the studio cut it.

The Director’s Cut explores in greater depth a love triangle between a bartender, a coat check girl and a busboy. Shane, a Jersey boy with big dreams, crosses the river in hopes of finding a more exciting life at Studio 54. When Steve Rubell, the mastermind behind the infamous disco, plucks Shane from the sea of faces clamouring to get inside his club, Shane not only gets his foot in the door, but lands a coveted job behind the bar – and a front-row seat at the most legendary party on the planet.

Starring Mike Myers, Ryan Phillippe, Salma Hayek and Neve Campbell.
