15th Bendigo Queer Film Festival

April 27 – 29 2018 marks the 15th annual Bendigo Queer Film Festival (BQFF), and after securing tri annual funding from the City of Greater Bendigo last year they have a brilliant list of films, including the French feature ‘BPM’ and the opening night film from America ‘The Feels’. The films screen at the LaTrobe Art Institute in the heart of Bendigo’s beautiful arts precinct on View Street. Another highlight of the film festival is the Queer Country Art Exhibition at Dudley House, also in the arts precinct, from April 20 – April 29.

“The BQFF committee are proud to present one of Australia’s only regional queer film festivals, now in its 15th year. There truly is something for everyone in this year’s program: short films from Australian filmmakers, the best of foreign features; gripping and fun docos; youth oriented content; serious drama; and comedy. We are proud to offer content that caters to the diversity that exists within Central Victoria. We are thrilled to present a great program of events that celebrate, educate and inform LGBTI Victorians and the wider Goldfields community. All are welcome to be a part of the fun.” – Suellen Pepperell – Convenor of the Bendigo Queer Film Festival
