The MGFF23 Supportix Program supported by American Express.
Queer Screen recognises that there are many barriers our community faces when it comes to attending our events, so we have created the Supportix program. Supportix is intended for those who are facing social or economic barriers to accessing film festival tickets and enables Queer Screen to give 2 free tickets to those unable to buy their own. Supportix looks and acts like regular film tix, and requesting Supportix is super simple. Terms and conditions apply. To access email firstname.lastname@example.org.
