Time to make those MIFF plans! Comment this post to win (tag a friend + what film you're excited to see at MIFF), we'll choose three winners at random. 😍🎬Edit: Winners have been contacted, thanks to all who left a comment, enjoy MIFF! 💜

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. 🌈💜
