All the Audience Awards for Queer Screen Film Fest 2023

Queer Screen Film Fest 2023 Audience Award Winners

Our 10th Queer Screen Film Fest was a huge and welcome return to cinemas for many of us, and we screened 37 films across 20 unique programs!

We of course love every film we program, but we leave the Audience Award up to you. After each film, there’s an opportunity to rate what you’ve just watched on a scale of 1-5, either in cinemas or On Demand.

At the end of Queer Screen Film Fest, we tally them up and give out our Audience Awards.
