My Queer Career
My Queer Career was originally created as a forum for Queer Australian filmmakers to share and screen their work, and has since become the largest prize exclusively for LGBTIQ identified screen practitioners in Australia.
Running over two nights for the 2013 festival My Queer Career will see one talented filmmaker take home the Stephen Cummins Film Trust Best Film Award, a cash prize of $3000. The finalist’s this year are a testament to the level of filmmaking talent in Australia –and this is not an Australian shorts program you can afford to miss.
Prizes awarded on the night are Emerging Talent Award; Queer Perspective Award; The Metro Screen NSW Filmmaker Award, Audience Award and of course Best Film.
Past judges have included Margaret Pomeranz, Anton Enus, Michael McMahon, Tony Ayres, Ana Kokkinos, Fiona McGregor, Brian Walsh, Helen Bowden and Mark Woods.
So join us for 2 nights of the finest in Australian short filmmaking and a showcase of the rising screen stars of tomorrow. The award ceremony will take place at the Friday 22nd screening, and the Thursday 21st screening will have a very special industry guest and is not to missed!
There will be celebrations and industry networking opportunities on both nights, so don’t miss this very special 2013 presentation of My Queer Career.
