Queer films to screen at M.A.D.E in country Victoria

LAST UPDATED // Thursday, 29 May 2014 16:52 Written by // James Findlay

MQFF is heading into the country this weekend, as they present two films in Ballarat at M.A.D.E. (Museum of Australian Democracy at Eureka).

Lisa Daniel, MQFF Festival Director, selected the program for the event in Ballarat, which includes Any Day Now, Reaching for the Moon as well as a 2014 Shorts Package from this year's festival.

"The MQFF and M.A.D.E are excited to team up to bring some highlights of the MQFF to the screens of Ballarat," Daniel said.

"After an approach from M.A.D.E about extending their program of fabulous events and exhibitions, the decision to team up was an easy one. Queer cinema is hard to find in the big smoke let alone regional centres, and it's vitally important for our queer cousins to be able to see good quality film.So we're very happy to be able to tour our opening, closing and OZ shorts films to M.A.D.E.

"We look forward to future screenings in the region."
