Brisbane Queer Film Festival - Powerhouse Arts Centre, New Farm, Fri Apr 9 - Sun Apr 18 2010

The Brisbane Queer Film Festival is on at the Brisbane Powerhouse from Friday April 9 to Sunday April 18 2010.

Some of the films that look interesting include:

Drool - a woman accidentaly kills her abusive husband, so she puts him in the boot of her car and sets off with her best friend

Eyes Wide Open - Aaron, who lives in an ultra-religious community in Israel, falls in love with Ezri, a young man

The Big Gay Musical - Two young gay musical theatre actors work out how they think they should live their lives

(Although the idea of gay men in musical theatre doesn't sound very believable)

Beautiful Darling: The Life and Times of Candy Darling, Andy Warhol Superstar

Hannah Free: Two women in the USA's Midwest maintain a lifelong love affair

Training Rules - documentary about how homophobia damages female athletes in college sports in the USA
