Submit Your Film

Queer Screen’s Mardi Gras Film Festival showcases screen content about or of significant interest to the LGBTIQ+ community.

Based in Sydney, Australia, and founded in 1993, Queer Screen has been Australia’s leading Queer screen/arts organisation for the past 29 years, and we are searching for world-class content.

Submissions will be considered for any upcoming event*, including (but not limited to) Queer Screen’s 30th Mardi Gras Film Festival, (Feb/Mar 2023).

MGFF23 will coincide with Sydney World Pride and Queer Screen’s 30th Anniversary.

All Australian-produced short films will be automatically in the running for selection as part of My Queer Career, the richest prize for Australian LGBTIQ+ short films, which is a competition within the Mardi Gras Film Festival program.

Any inquires or issues please contact

*Please note – Queer Screen Film Fest is on hiatus in 2022, but Queer Screen also curates out of festival special events

There are no submission fees.

Submissions close on November 6th, 2022.
