LGBT Film Festivals Australia:

The Bendigo Queer Film Festival was founded in 2004 by Chris Walters in collaboration with the Melbourne Queer Film Festival (MQFF), who are the key sponsor and program the films for the Festival. The Bendigo Queer Film Festival attracts people from all over Victoria and interstate.

We are proud to be one of the few regional centres Australia wide, which hosts its own queer film festival. BQFF provides cultural and artistic opportunities to gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, intersex and queer (LGBTIQA+) people living in Central Victoria. BQFF is recognised as a significant event by the LGBTIQA+ community and by the City of Greater Bendigo. We are proud of this special event, which showcases queer talent and attracts interstate and international visitors to our region.


DYKE DRAMA is Australia’s only lesbian short film festival. It’s almost impossible to believe, but it is! Lesbian invisibility is alive and well, even today, in 2013. Well, not anymore. Perth is about to play host to a parade of international short films reflecting the everyday lives of lesbians as seen by lesbians. No vampires, no psychopaths, no suicides…just our incredible stories.​


Perv is an international film and video festival dedicated to queerotica. Perv showcases some of the latest and greatest audio-visual material representing and catering to queer desires. The festival is committed to the representation of diverse sexual identities and practices. From the sensual to the lewd, the silly to the serious, the subtle to the shamelessly upfront, the Perv programs explore the full spectrum of queer erotic imagery with a program of screenings, discussions, parties and play.
