In 2020, before Monsoon made cinema audiences swoon en masse, it screened at the Brisbane Queer Film Festival first. The same applies to Aussie teen rom-com Ellie & Abbie (& Ellie's Dead Aunt), too. So, if you're eager to see some of 2021's queer movie highlights well before they reach general release, then you'd best make a date with this year's BQFF.

Running from Thursday, March 11–Sunday, March 21, BQFF will unleash a jam-packed 11-day program at New Farm Cinemas, all to celebrate the fest's 22nd year. Expect star-studded gems, the latest works from top directors, bold debuts from first-timers and everything in-between, all as part of a lineup that spans 20 features and three different shorts sessions.

From that lengthy selection, standouts include the The World to Come, a frontier romance featuring Katherine Waterston (The Third Day) and Vanessa Kirby (Pieces of a Woman); German drama No Hard Feelings, which explores queer immigrant life; British thriller Make Up, as set in a seaside caravan park; and Sublet, the new film from acclaimed Israeli filmmaker Eytan Fox. There's also opening night's I Carry You With Me, which unfurls a romance throughout Mexico across several decades — and the Australian-made The Greenhouse, which ponders a time-travel scenario.
