SeasonQFT Late - Cult & Classic

July’s QFT Late: Cult & Classic film was suggested by our Facebook followers. Priscilla was the most popular choice so thank you all (and apologies if we didn’t choose your film!)

Join us to celebrate the start of Belfast Pride with a flamboyant, modern classic starring Terence Stamp, Guy Pearce and Hugo Weaving.

Priscilla took two drag queens and a transgender woman in an infamous lavender bus across Australia, turning writer/director Stephan Elliott’s wild, glittering, and fabulously queer road movie into a watershed moment for the LGBT movement. Costumes, cabaret, lip-syncing, fights, bigotry AND solidarity – Priscilla, Queen of the Desert is at once clever, funny and beautiful.

Belfast Pride Festival, Fri 28 Jul - Sun 6 Aug
