Melbourne Queer Film Festival Interrupted
Time Out says
Melbourne Queer Film Festival is back with its largest ever online offering
After its original March dates became untenable due to shutdowns, Melbourne Queer Film Festival returned to our screens via an online festival in July, bringing a little sunshine to our homes during a dark winter.
This November the festival is back again, continuing to promote inclusion, community and the celebration of all LGBTQ+ people in Melbourne Queer Film Festival Interrupted. MQFF Interrupted will be the festival's biggest ever foray into the online world, with more than 50 queer films available anywhere with an internet connection between November 19 and 30.
The program features 17 features and 40 short films from both international and local filmmakers. Highlights of the festival include Lingua Franca (the first romantic drama to be written and directed by a trans woman of colour), And Then We Danced (A Georgian romance), Bit (a queer spin on The Lost Boys) and Ellie and Abbie (And her Dead Aunt) – an Australian coming out comedy that made the rounds at this year's Melbourne International Film Festival. MQFF's shorts packages will be available too, such as Hooking Up, Transformations, Documentary Shorts and Asia-Pacific Shorts.
While the program can be watched Australia wide, those living in Melbourne can also book into Coburg's Village Drive-In for a screening of new romcom The Happiest Season (starring Kristen Stewart and Mackenzie Davis).
Tickets are on sale now through MQFF.
