Melbourne Queer Film Festival

Melbourne Queer Film Festival

Thursday, 18 November 2021 until Monday, 29 November 2021

The Melbourne Queer Film Festival is the oldest, largest and most successful queer film festival in Australia. Our main festival screens over 140 sessions of LGBTIQ+ films over 12 days running through November.

We also run a smaller festival called MQFF eXtra, special events, members screenings and activations throughout the year.

MQFF supports local and international filmmaking talent through our various Jury & audience choice awards. This includes the City of Melbourne Award for Best Australian Short which automatically qualifies the recipient for our nomination in the Iris Prize - the largest prize for a gay or lesbian short film in the world.
