MISSION & OBJECTIVE
To provide innovative, diverse, accessible and entertaining quality screen events which promote/stimulate and support queer cultures.

ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
The Festival first screened in Melbourne 1991 and has continued every year since.

Melbourne Queer Film Festival is the oldest queer film festival in Australia, and one of the oldest queer film festivals in the world. It is the largest queer film festival in the Southern Hemisphere, as well as being the second largest film festival of any kind in Victoria.

Over the past 23 years it is estimated that over 245,000 people have attended the Festival and other MQFF events.

Originally called the Melbourne International Lesbian & Gay Film & Video Festival, we became the Melbourne Queer Film & Video Festival in 1993, and settled on Melbourne Queer Film Festival in 2003.

Since 1992 the Festival has screened within the boundaries of the City of Melbourne, originally at the State Film Theatre at Treasury Place and also the Capitol Theatre in Swanston Street. For the past ten years, MQFF has screened in the heart of Melbourne at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) at Federation Square - one of the finest screening venues in the world. Our current Festival Director Lisa Daniel has been in the role since 1997 and is one of the most respected queer film festival directors in the world. The Festival is run by 3 part time staff, over 150 volunteers, interns and a volunteer Board. A not for profit organisation, the MQFF is one of the most widely respected queer events in Australia with annual attendance of around 25,000 over 11 days.
