Melbourne Queer Film FestAustralia’s oldest and largest LGBTIQ film festival, Melbourne Queer Film Festival (MQFF) will be programming from The Victorian Pride Centre in St Kilda later this year.

The Victorian Pride Centre Board Chair Jude Munro AO and acting CEO Justine Dalla Riva presented MQFF’s President Scott Herron, business manager Daniel Lancefield and CEO Maxwell Gratton with a symbolic key to the Pride Centre.

Celebrating 30 years in 2020, MQFF is Australia’s largest and longest running film festival that tells the stories of LGBTIQ+ communities through film and the moving image. With a main festival in March, MQFF eXtra in October and regional screenings covering Geelong, Bendigo, Shepparton, Ballarat and Morwell, the festival offers an array of opportunities for the community and its allies to come together and enjoy queer film.

Apart from programming from the centre, MQFF will work together with the Pride Centre to look at spaces like the Theatre and the rooftop to increase opportunities for the community to enjoy queer film – bringing arts, culture and vibrancy to the precinct.
