“The past year has once again challenged all of us, and in putting together the programme for the festival this year, I was driven to find some of the best queer films that had been produced over that time,” PQFF Artistic Director Mark Reid says.

“The result is one that I think offers an insight into the many and varied stories we have to share about being queer in 2022 and beyond. The range and depth of the films we have on offer this year, I think, ensures that there really is something to engage everyone.”

The festival will return to Geraldton after a successful mini event in 2021, as well as heading to Albany, Kalgoorlie and Busselton over the next three months.

Throughout the festival, audiences can expect to see documentaries, short films, love stories, features and more. . . From locations including Chile, Finland, France, USA, Spain, Canada, Germany, South Africa, United Kingdom, Singapore, Brazil, Italy, and of course Australia. 18 of the 2022 films will be having their world premiere at PQFF.

Programme highlights including films chronicling queer activism in 1970s San Francisco, a stunning closing night feature film following a trans woman’s return to a small town where she must face her past to be ready for her future, and a range of new Australian films.

PRIDE Queer Film Festival plays The Backlot Perth 2-9 March. It then heads to Albany (22-24 April), Geraldton (13-15 May), Busselton (27-29 May) and Kalgoorlie (17-19 June).
