BQFF Fundraiser – Beach Rats
December 13, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:40 pm UTC+10
Brisbane Queer Film Festival are hosting two Brisbane Advanced Screening pre festival films for the festive season!
2017 has been another incredible year for Queer film and as we head towards our 2018 festival we’d love to share some of this year’s best films at the fantastic New Farm Cinema.
The first is a fundraiser for BQFF, the Sundance Award Winning Beach Rats, an exploration of masculinity by director Eliza Hittman, hailed as “one of the most captivating and sensitive portraits of sexual confusion you are likely to see anytime soon. And that’s saying a lot in the age of Moonlight.”
“The story of Beach Rats is familiar, yet immediately fresh. Frankie is a 19-year-old Brooklynite who spends his days playing handball, smoking weed, and cruising the beach for girls. At night, though, a whole different side of Frankie comes out, quite literally. He meets up with older men online for sex, insisting throughout that he doesn’t know what he wants. Struggling to reconcile his latent homosexuality with his hyper-masculine bravado, things soon erupt into violence when his friends learn his secret.” Jack Rear, Verdict.
