Mardi Gras Film Festival - The Queer Frontier

17 February - 3 March 2022


Welcome to the Queer Screen's 29th Mardi Gras Film Festival !


The French-Australian AFRAN community might be interested in the Festival in general and particularly the film 'The Divide' as well as 'Benedetta' and 'Ma Belle, My Beauty' which are French productions.

The Divide - from out filmmaker, Catherine Corsini (Summertime, MGFF16 Opening Night) is fresh from winning the Queer Palm Award at Cannes, 2021. The Divide follows the darkly comic events that unfold in a besieged Paris hospital.

Ma Belle, My Beauty – When former polyamorous lovers are reunited in the South of France, desires and disappointments are rekindled as the characters tackle the past, present and future of their relationship.

Benedetta – A titillating, shocking and fascinating portrait of a woman on the brink of madness, torn between lust, desire and sanctity – Benedetta must be seen to be believed.
