Get ready to attend a virtual festival online event on Friday 1 May 2020 from 7-10pm. Dress up or dress down, the Melbourne Queer Film Festival is going ahead with it's Virtual Film Night. Join the online discussion from 7pm via MQFF's Facebook Watch Party. There'll be an intro with Program Director Spiro Economopoulos, and the film will begin at 7.15pm.
Freak Show follows the story of teenager Billy Bloom (Alex Lawther) in producer Trudie Styler's directorial debut. Here is a young man who refuses to compromise his fabulousness in order to assimilate with the jeans and polo shirt majority at his new high school. Grab the wine, have the cocktail-ready, order dinner and have the corn popping and join the MQFF community for an evening of fabulousness.
MQFF are also looking for Couch Critics. If you'd like to become their very own Queer Critic (the content obviously needs to be queer, be it film, tv series or short film), submit a 30 second to 2 minute video-review of the queer content you're watching.
All you need is a phone with a video camera, and you could win some fun prizes, including the major prize as their official Film Critic for 2021, plus an All-In Pass. Enter as many times as you like. The reviews will be posted weekly on their YouTube Channel where viewers will vote on their favourite reviews, so bring your A game. Queer critic will run over 5 weeks starting in April.
