My Queer Career
Calling all Australian Filmmakers! If you are queer or have made a queer film, My Queer Career is one of the world’s most prestigious awards available for queer short filmmakers. It is only open to locally produced work. The major prize includes $3,000 cash, other prizes include in-kind production facilities and support to the value of $10,000. The winning film gains automatic entry to the Iris Prize, the world’s largest prize for a gay and lesbian short film, held in Cardiff, Wales.

Mardi Gras Film Festival
The Mardi Gras Film Festival is the number one queer film event south of the equator, and it is currently looking for submissions. Queer themed features, shorts and docos from anywhere in the world are encouraged to submit to the festival from September to November. The festival runs in late February, and feature films and documentaries selected are eligible for the Best Feature Audience Award and the Best Documentary Audience Award.
Submissions have closed for Mardi Gras Film Festival 2017. Films can be submitted for consideration in any events after MGFF 2017.
As part of Queer Screen’s mission statement to ‘inspire and engage people by sharing queer stories’, we are happy to support LGBTIQ filmmakers’ projects by providing exposure on our website and social media. In order to maximise the impact of this initiative, Queer Screen reserves the right to evaluate each submission and decide if including it in our “Featured Projects” page.
