Gayby Baby

Hi there,

We have had some great news with the City of Greater Bendigo showing support to the Bendigo Queer Film Festival for the next three years through the Partnerships Funding program and we are a presenting partner for the film Gayby Baby with the Star Cinema Eaglehawk. It's a great film for all to see so make sure you book.

Some exciting things in the pipeline for the BQFF 2016 and this collaboration is just the beginning.
