FESTIVAL FEATURE

7th March 2021

Melbourne's LGBTIQ+ communities will have a chance to get together again, safely, when MQFF takes over Melbourne cinemas for MQFF Together this March.

MQFF Together screens from Thursday 11th March to Sunday 21th March 2021 at Village Cinemas Jam Factory, Cinema Nova and the Village Cinemas Coburg Drive-In. This will be the festival's first in-cinema screenings since the postponement of its 30th festival due to coronavirus.

The impacts of COVID-19, however, have not dampened the richness of queer stories with 64 films from all parts of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex and queer communities being featured throughout the festival.

The SWITCH team have come together to bring you the best reviews from this year's program - so check them out below, and make sure you come back throughout the festival as we add more to the collection!
