Some of the biggest queer film titles of 2016 are headed to Sydney this week, as part of this year's annual Queer Screen Film Fest. Running from September 20-25 at the Event Cinemas on George Street, the latest edition of this LGBTQI-themed film fest will showcase 11 feature films along with a selection of international shorts. But you'd best get your movie-loving skates on, because tickets are already selling fast.
This year's program features a fantastic mix of titles from all around the world. Park Chan-wook's critically acclaimed South Korean thriller The Handmaiden screens ahead of its limited theatrical release next month. It's one of two South Korean films on the program, with the other being Lee Dong-ha's charming documentary Weekend, about the country's only gay men's choir.
Other standouts include the gruesome horror-comedy You're Killing Me, music doco Danny Says, and indie rom-com The Intervention. And if you do miss out on something, don't despair just yet – a select number of titles will also screen in the Blue Mountains in late October.
