Since I was a wee young queerling I have been volunteering for the QueerScreen Mardi Gras film festival each year, and attended many other events these fine folk run. The whole organisation is a delight, and wonderfully supportive to film-makers. On this note, the deadline for their ‘My Queer Career’ award is THIS FRIDAY. You can check out all the details here, but in a nutshell it:
‘is one of the world’s most prestigious awards for queer short filmmakers and is only open to locally produced work. The major prize includes $3,000 cash and automatic inclusion in the international queer shorts competition, the IRIS PRIZE. Other prizes include in-kind production facilities and support to the value of $15,000.’
So there you go. What you waiting for?
