The 2017 Queer Screen Film Fest to bring a diverse range of LGBTIQ stories to Adelaide

The 2017 Queer Screen Film Fest aims to bring light to various LGBTIQ stories that deserve praise from all audiences. This year, it will travel to Adelaide as part of the Feast Festival from the 3-4 November 2017.

Festival Director, Lisa Rose stated “Showcasing queer stories on screen is what Queer Screen is all about and being able to broaden our reach and bring quality, thought-provoking, moving, amusing and fun films to audiences in Adelaide who would have otherwise missed out, is incredibly exciting and important.”

All four films are Adelaide Premieres and various feature award winners, fresh off the international festival circuit.

An all-star queer cast, including  Alan Cumming, Zachary Booth, Justin Vivian Bond and Wilson Cruz, star in After Louie which centres around the fragile and volatile relationships of different political mindsets of various generations of gay men.

The Feels looks to be the lesbian equivalent of Bridesmaids, as the audience follows Constance Wu ( Fresh Off The Boat ) and her bride to be on a lesbian bachelorette weekend away in this hilarious and sexy comedy.

Tom of Finland aims to take audiences on the journey behind one of the most recognisable gay icons in history. It has gained critical praise as the winner of the 2017 Audience Award for Best Narrative at this year’s Queer Screen Film Fest.

Finally, Princess Cyd centres around the coming-of-age story about strong women discovering themselves through both awkward and heartfelt situations such as being attracted to an androgynous barista, or dealing with an aunt who questions her own ideas of faith and sex.

The 5th Queer Screen Film Fest travels to Adelaide for the very first time at GU Filmhouse as part of Feast Festival from the 3 – 4 November 2017. Purchase tickets for all films at
