Our CEO Maxwell Gratton was invited by Victoria University, Melbourne Australia, to deliver the opening remarks for its IDAHOBIT celebrations at Footscray Park campus today. Many thanks VU! 🙏Movie critic Roger Ebert once said that movies are empathy generating machines and by that he meant that we, as viewers, identify with the characters on screen and that helps us to understand experiences and perspectives other than our own.It is especially important for young LGBTIQ Australians to be represented as the leads in their own adventures and it’s just as important for straight audiences to see these kinds of representations. People need to identify with queer characters and to see them as fully human equals with their own stories. Happy IDAHOBIT from all of the MQFF team. 🌈💜
Happy IDAHOBIT - International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia, Intersex Discrimination & Transphobia. We stand in solidarity with our LGBTIQ+ community today and always. 💜💜💜💜💜🌈 (Photo taken at Midsumma Pride March this year by our team.) #IDAHOBIT

Help MQFF raise funds today to support projects such as our Regional Film Tour – helping rural queer communities see their story on screen.Chip in what you can, donations made will be matched dollar for dollar – doubling the impact you can have on queer film, right now! 🌈 #giveOUTday
