Brisbane Queer film fest launched by drag queen Full Brisbane Queer Film Festival line-up revealed

According to producer Troy Armstrong, the event will outline the films for 2014, a series of new events and the festival campaign featuring well-known local identities from Brisbane’s LGBTIQ community.

“2014’s Brisbane Queer film Festival will include retrospective screenings, a slumber party screening and special events involving the LGBTIQ community so we thought a cocktail party to show off our rooftop at Brisbane Powerhouse was a great way to celebrate the changes.

“The theme is 1950s Italian romance so pop on your best summer party frock and embrace ‘La Dolce Vita’ for a night of cocktails, river views and smooth sounds on our deck.”

The 15th annual Brisbane Queer film Festival is on 28 March – 5 April 2014 and will feature a film celebrating LGBTIQ romance from around the world. In 2014 new events include the launch cocktail party and closing night party (in addition to the traditional opening night party scheduled for 28 March), business networking functions, retrospective screenings and film forums.

The winners of the Queer Aussie Shorts national film-making competition will also be revealed in the evening. Queer Aussie Shorts entries close December 6 and are open to Australian filmmakers with an LGBTIQ story to tell.
