12th Bendigo Queer Film Festival

17 - 19 April 2015

City of Greater Bendigo funding.


We are very pleased to announce that the City of Greater Bendigo will be our major financial sponsor for 2015.

The financial support that has been awarded to the Bendigo Queer Film Festival through the community grants funding program 2014/2015 will go a long way to help us become more sustainable and grow in the future.

It really shows the commitment from the City of Greater Bendigo in supporting diversity and striving towards making Bendigo one of the most liveable regional cities in Australia.

We have been given 5 x double passes to see "Cut Snake" at the gala opening of the Melbourne International Film Festival, Bendigo season tomorrow night at 7.30pm. This is at the Star Cinema Eaglehawk.

To be in the running just email with your name and the subject "Cut Snake". It's that simple! First 5 responses gets the tickets.

It's 1974, and in an attempt to put his old, troubled life behind him Sparra Farrell (Alex Russell, Carrie, Chronicle) has moved to a new city with his fiancée, Paula (Jessica De Gouw, These Final Hours, MIFF 2013). But when the brutal Pommie (Sullivan Stapleton, 300: Rise of an Empire) tracks him down, Sparra realises he'll have to fight to keep the past from ruining his future. Supported by the MIFF Premiere Fund, Cut Snake shows how one man's biggest enemy in moving forward can be himself.

"I've been passionate about making Cut Snake for many years now. For me, it's the combination of it being a thriller and a relationship drama which makes it so exciting." – Tony Ayres

Bendigo Opening Night Gala includes drink on arrival.
