A scene from BPM.


THIS year marks the 15th annual Bendigo Queer Film Festival.

After securing three years worth of funding from council last year organisers say they have a brilliant list of films, including the French feature BPM and the opening night film from America The Feels.

The films screen at the La Trobe Art Institute in View Street from April 27 to 29.

Another highlight of the film festival is the Queer Country Art Exhibition at Dudley House, also in the arts precinct, from April 20 to April 29.

BQFF convenor Suellen Pepperell said the group is proud to present one of Australia’s only regional queer film festivals.

There truly is something for everyone in this year’s program: short films from Australian filmmakers, the best of foreign features; gripping and fun docos; youth oriented content; serious drama; and comedy,” she said.

“We are thrilled to present a great program of events that celebrate, educate and inform LGBTI Victorians and the wider Goldfields community.”
