Queer Screen’s 31st Mardi Gras Film Festival Has Launched

Queer Screen’s 31st Mardi Gras Film Festival (MGFF24) is ready to start a conversation.

Screening in Sydney from 15 to 29 February 2024, before an on demand encore streaming nationwide from 1 to 11 March 2024, tickets are on sale now.

This year, the Festival encourages the audience to indulge in a good, old-fashioned, post-screening discussion (or debate!), with a jaw-dropping program that will get everyone’s tongues wagging.

“The theme focuses on films that start conversations. People will be keen to discuss and dissect them as soon as the credits start to roll… There’s so much to sink your teeth into, including several that will inspire lively debate.” – Festival Director, Lisa Rose.

Encompassing an epic 161 films and events spread across 77 unique programs, MGFF24 will be on everyone’s lips.

Audiences can agree, disagree, or agree to disagree on the merits of each at our favourite venues – Event Cinemas (George Street and Hurstville), Ritz Cinemas Randwick, Dendy Cinemas Newtown, the Bearded Tit and Hayden Orpheum Cremorne – and some exciting new ones, including a special double bill of music and film at the Sydney Opera House and panel discussions at the State Library of NSW.
The Festival also makes a welcome return to the stunning Westpac OpenAir Cinema, following last year’s sold-out screening of Cate Blanchett’s TÁR.
