Australian Showcase
Book Tix!

A solitary cowboy dives headfirst into a grungy world of lust and love on the streets of Sydney, in Craig Boreham’s (Teenage Kicks, MGFF17) frank and sometimes confronting Lonesome.

Country boy Casey (a perpetually shirtless Josh Lavery) fled farm life for the big smoke following an unexpected tragedy. A Grindr threesome introduces him to Tib (the stunning Daniel Gabriel), a self-reliant local, and there’s clearly a connection beyond a one-off hookup. Drawn into Tib’s life on the fringes, filled with uninhibited sex, drugs, and odd jobs for cash, have these two lone wolves finally found someone else they can rely on?

Content warning: contains discussions of suicide and depictions of BDSM that may be confronting

Lonesome is a Queer Screen Completion Fund Recipient.

This screening includes a special Q&A with writer-director Craig Boreham, producer and director of photography Dean Francis, and actors Josh Lavery, Anni Finsterer and Ian Roberts, followed by an after party celebrating Lonesome. Film-only tickets are also available. 

“At its most compelling, the film is an intimate study of emotionally scarred strangers who find communion through the flesh that opens a tentative window to their hearts.”
