Five people, all with short hair and wearing shorts stand in a line-up on a beach, volcanic mountains behind them.

Before the Eruption

Come and join us for some quality filmmaking from the Queer community.

An eclectic mix of genres from horror to love stories to family drama – we’ve got you covered all in one screening. Come and share in film journeys about what it is to be Queer across the modern world. You’ll laugh (well, maybe.) You’ll cry (well, I did). You’ll learn something and carry it with you as you leave us. But, most of all, you’ll love this showcase of queer filmmakers’ work from across the globe.

Curated by Jamie Rea.
