* Melbourne Queer Film Festival 2019 *
In 2019, Melbourne Queer Film Festival heads into its 29th year to showcase the finest, contemporary queer cinema from Australia and beyond in the largest queer film festival in the Southern Hemisphere. From 14-25 March, MQFF will present over 100 sessions at ACMI, Cinema Nova and Village Cinemas, encompassing Australian and International features, documentaries and shorts, including World Premieres, Australian Premieres, and Melbourne Premieres. The largest queer film festival in the Southern Hemisphere returns for its 29th year. The Melbourne Queer Film Festival (MQFF) returns in March, and will screen 142 features, documentaries and shorts from Australia and abroad across three cinemas. The country's largest and longest running LGBTQI-focused film festival (for any Melburnians gutted about missing February's Mardi Gras Film Festival) will open with a suitably fabulous gala at Village Cinemas Jam Factory. The full program hasn't dropped yet, but MQFF has dangled some highlights including Rafiki, a story of young love between two Nairobi women. After being banned in its home country, it was the first Kenyan film chosen as part of the Cannes Film Festival official selection in 2018. There's also festival favourite Daddy Issues, about an artist pulled into an unlikely modern love triangle, and A Kid Like Jake starring Claire Danes and Jim Parsons as loving parents of a trans child. Village Cinemas Jam Factory, Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) and Cinema Nova. For all festival information see: www.mqff.com.au.
