We are very excited to present some wonderful films this year and now 9 film sessions to fill your appetite for queer film.
Let us know what you think, or even better, book and bring your friends and family!
Some highlights include the spectacular opening night at the Star Cinema Eaglehawk with live entertainment, finger food and a glass of bubbly on arrival. Dress 70's to fit the theme as you walk the red carpet.
Christine Nixon will be our guest patron this year and we look forward to a great BQFF Breakfast at the Capital Theatre on the Sunday.
The Queer Country Art Exhibition is once again being staged at Dudley House but this time over 2 weeks and if that's not enough we have the fabulous films for you to enjoy.
The BQFF committee look forward to seeing you at the event and please spread the word to help this important festival grow.
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.
To be in the running just email firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
