The PRIDE Queer Film Festival is back in 2023! Our 7th Festival promises a wide range of queer films to intice, excite and thrill our local audiences.

Running from March 8-14 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 mini-festivals in 2022 supported by the US Consulate General of Perth.

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.

    Thanks so much for screening "Don't Let Go" in this year's festival. We truly wish we could have been there in person. But the communication, organization, and planning were top notch. Highly recommend!

    Mark is a tremendous hard worker and made an extraordinary work. The venue, the material (catalogue)... everything was beautiful and proffesional. That was a real honor to take part of PQFF.

  • The festival Director Mark Reid was great to work with.
    It was a very rewarding and enjoyable experience being part of the festival.
    In terms of ease of technical accessibility and festival support it was faultless and fruitful.
    The festival also offered much appreciated and valuable professional and audience feedback for me.
    Thanks again team Pride Queer for screening my film, but also for the accolade.
    Very Honoured.
