The Perth Queer Film Festival is back in 2024! Our 8th Festival promises a wide range of queer films to entice, excite and thrill our local audiences.

Running from March 6 - 12 and showing at the Backlot Perth we aim to bring a range of diverse and interesting LGBTQI films and documentaries to the Festival.

This year the Festival will head on the road with trips planned to at least 3 regional cities to share mini-festivals with local LGBTQI communities after our successful regional trips in 2022 and 2023.

With an exclusive opening night event and the chance to see some of the best new Queer Films this is the only Queer Film Festival on the West Coast of Australia.

Any films submitted must have significant LGBTQI content to be considered for screening. Both feature length and short films are accepted for consideration. Preference is for films that can be supplied in DCP or Blu Ray format but others will be considered.

Overall Rating
  • This festival is so amazing! I wish I could have attended this year's show. The staff and volunteers are great communicators and responsive to all questions in a timely manner. I've gotten feedback and exposure from their publicity as well as networking opportunities. I highly recommend submitting your film.
