Sequin In A Blue Room
MQFF is proud to present and support Australian Queer filmmaking talent and stories.
This remarkable debut feature from young Australian director Samuel Van Grinsven follows 16-year-old Sequin (his online handle) as he navigates the hedonistic world of anonymous hook-ups, sex parties, twinks and daddies in Sydney. When Sequin unwittingly gains a stalker, he realises he’s gotten in too deep. Erotic and unnerving in equal parts, Sequin in a Blue Room is a fresh take on the queer sex and dating scene, and a truly intoxicating ride.

A gay man’s attraction leads to a tense confrontation. Homophobia and fear play out in post gay marriage Australia.
“Sequin in a Blue Room feels very much of the moment, but it’s upholstered by an impressive command of good old-fashioned craft.”
