Queer Screen's 31st Mardi Gras Film Festival

15 Feb – 11 Mar 2024

This year at Queer Screen's 31st Mardi Gras Film Festival, the Festival encourages the audience to indulge in a good, old-fashioned, post-screening discussion (or debate!), with a jaw-dropping program that will get everyone's tongues wagging.

Screening in Sydney from 15 to 29 February, there will be lots to chat about with a programme encompassing an epic 161 films and events spread across 77 unique programs which includes panel discussions, industry networking events, international guests and parties and of course you can join the conversation at home with our curated on demand programme that will run as an encore 1 to 11 March. Tickets are now on sale at queerscreen.org.au

“The theme focuses on films that start conversations. People will be keen to discuss and dissect them as soon as the credits start to roll,” explains Festival Director Lisa Rose. “There's so much to sink your teeth into, including several that will inspire lively debate.”

The festival will host screenings and events at nine venues across Sydney including Event Cinemas (George Street and Hurstville), Ritz Cinemas (Randwick), Dendy Cinema (Newtown), Hayden Orpheum (Cremorne), the beautiful Westpac OpenAir Cinema, the Bearded Tit (Redfern) and we are excited to be heading to the Sydney Opera House for a special double bill of music and film and the State Library of NSW for some fantastic panel discussions.
