Bendigo Queer Film Festival
International Short Film Competition 2021

Documentary and True Story

The Engine Room 58 View St, Bendigo VIC 3550

Part 1 of the second BQFF International short film competition!

We’ve once more risked life and limb (no, not really) to scour the world (from the appropriately socially distanced safety of our lounge rooms) for the best and newest queer short films in the last year.

The entries this year are so good that we split the competition into two screenings.

This first screening of the 2021 competition shows the best documentary and true stories from this year’s entries.
