Queer Screen is a community, cultural, non profit organisation whose main aim is to celebrate and promote Australian and international queer screen culture in all its diversity and richness.

To achieve this aim, Queer Screen produces three main events during the year.

• Mardi Gras Film Festival - the biggest event on Queer Screen’s calendar.

• My Queer Career - the Australian and New Zealand queer shorts competition held during the Mardi Gras Film Festival.

• queerDOC- the international documentary film festival is presented in September.

Queer Screen is run for the benefit of the members and the wider queer community.

The organisation is overseen by a volunteer board of directors, which is elected annually by the membership.

The office is staffed part-time by Panos Couros (Executive Producer), Lex Lindsay (Company Administrator) Megan Carrigy (Program Coordinator) and David Pearce (Programmer).

Office Hours are Monday to Thursday, 10am to 4pm.

The annual Mardi Gras Film Festival is the largest lesbian and gay film festival in Australia and one of the top five in the world. The Festival has a growing reputation as an international market and showcase for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender screen culture.



The Intent of Queer Screen:

As a queer organisation we are dedicated to representing and strengthening the gay, lesbian, transgender and bisexual communities by presenting screen works that reflect the diversity of those communities. We create projects that help make the space for this expression.
