Queer Screen’s 31st Mardi Gras Film Festival is making its way to the Blue Mountains with some of its most talked-about films of the festival.

The best of the festival will be screening from Friday, March 22, to Sunday, March 24, at Mt Vic Flicks. Tickets are on sale now at here.

On Friday, experience the breathtaking 4K restoration of the 1995 classic 'When Night Is Falling' and get ready to be mesmerized by one of the most erotic sapphic romances to ever grace our screens.

On Saturday, check out 'Best of MGFF24 Shorts,' which showcases an eclectic bunch of films from this year’s lineup, followed by the most talked-about film of the festival and our Audience Award Winner 'Femme,' an acclaimed neo-noir thriller about internalized homophobia, performative masculinity, and the limits of queer resilience.

Finishing off the Blue Mountains on Sunday is the delightful 'Isla’s Way.’ This beautiful Australian documentary follows octogenarian Isla, whose straight-shooting and funny personality (and love for horse-drawn carriages) makes her a local hero.

“We are thrilled to be returning to the mountains with a stellar lineup of films.” said Festival Director, Lisa Rose.

“The fact that we are bringing the film that opened our festival in Sydney and went on to win our audience award for narrative feature is incredibly exciting.”

Queer Screen’s 31st Mardi Gras Film Festival’s trip to the Blue Mountains is supported by Presenting Partner Optus, Major Partners American Express, Allianz, Johnnie Walker, and Government Partner Screen NSW.

Tickets for the MGFF24 tour are on sale now. Queer Screen memberships are also available and offer discounted tickets and priority entry. Please visit queerscreen.org.au or the Queer Screen Mardi Gras Film Festival app, or call (02) 9280 1533 to book."
