From Moonlight winning best picture at this year's Oscars, to Call Me By Your Name looking set to shine brightly in the current awards season, 2017 has been a great year for queer cinema. God's Own Country, Professor Marston and the Wonder Women, A Fantastic Woman, Beach Rats — the list goes on. And while they haven't all made it to Australian cinemas just yet, two of them are coming Brisbane's way thanks to the Brisbane Queer Film Festival.
While the actual fest doesn't roll around again until March 2018, the BQFF team is treating Brissie cinephiles to sessions of Beach Rats and Call Me By Your Name a little early. The first, on December 13, marks the festival's fundraiser — so if you're eager for an ace event next year, you'll want to show your support. The second, on December 16, gives movie buffs a sneak peek of the film that has been enchanting audiences since it premiered at Sundance. (Don't believe us? Here's our thoughts from Sundance, Berlinale and the Sydney Film Festival.)
