My Queer Career Retrospective

My Queer Career Retrospective

Queer Screen celebrates 25 years of My Queer Career, Australia’s largest and most prestigious LGBTIQ short film competition. With the support of Create NSW we will be screening 12 films from the last decade of the competition, and some favourites from decades past, including the film that kicked off the very first My Queer Career all the way back in 1994.


Session runs for 176 minutes with interval. 


Join Us as we toast the last 25 years of supporting emerging Australian LGBTIQ cinema with a post-screening celebration in Gold Class.
