Celebrating 25 years of queer stories on film, Queer Screen’s 25th Mardi Gras Film Festival is a glorious mix of retrospective treasures and the latest and greatest films celebrating love, life and the journey to equality across the LGBTIQ+ spectrum. Tickets are now on sale online for the full program which runs from 15 February to 1 March in Event Cinemas George Street and across Sydney. With more than 60 Australian premieres, two World Premieres, abundant award-winning films and 12 different short film packages, the Festival will showcase 55 feature length films and 69 short films in 71 sessions. The Festival opens with Ideal Home, a hilarious dramedy about an extravagant bickering couple played by Steve Coogan and Paul Rudd who must look after a grandson they never knew they had. Closing Night film is the quirky coming-of- age and award-winning Freak Show featuring the camp and courageous Billy Bloom who is determined to live life as his fabulous self. With cameos from Bette Midler and Laverne Cox, it’s a great celebration of being here and being queer.
