October seems to be the month of firsts for queer cinema. The new film Bros has made history by becoming the first gay romantic comedy from a major film studio to hit the big screen, not to mention having an entire LGBTQ+ main cast. Now, New Farm Queer Film Festival is being held for the first time ever.
Showcasing ten films across eight days from October 20 – 27, NFQFF will play host to an exciting lineup of queer films and docos.
The film festival is located at New Farm Cinemas, which has been known to screen queer films on the big screen.
At the inaugural event, you’ll find everything from Queensland premieres of new films such as Lonesome and SISSY to cult favourites like Priscilla, Queen of the Desert and Call Me By Your Name.
We will of course get to see Bros as well, which follows two guys with commitment problems who attempt to date each other.
Opening night also coincides with the red carpet premiere of The Divide, a sapphic French drama, so come from 6pm and enjoy a glass of champagne on arrival.
