To commemorate the 40th anniversary of the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras, ABC Arts and Screen Australia commissioned 10 five-minute documentary shorts from LGBTIQ filmmakers across Australia. Love Bites is a celebration and insight into the lives of the LGBTIQ community and a showcase of great queer filmmaking talent. MQFF is excited to be screening the four Victorian entrants and all 10 shorts are available on iView to stream. The screening will be followed by a panel discussion with the filmmakers.
