PrideFEST 2020 Film Festival is coming to Raine Square

Raine Square and Palace Cinemas have announced the official PrideFEST 2020 Film Festival is coming this November, with part proceeds being donated to Pride WA.

The CBD cinema complex is set to transform into a celebration of WA’s LGBTQIA+ communities, with a selection of queer cinema favourites to mark this year’s Pride celebrations.

The festival will include the multi-award-winning Luca Guadagnino adaptation Call Me By Your Name, Oscar’s Best Picture 2016 winner Moonlight and cult comedy classic The Birdcage.

The highly anticipated Australian comedy Ellie & Abbie (& Ellie’s Dead Aunt) will also make its Perth premiere at the occasion.

In addition to the films, each screening will include an immersive cinema experience, with pre-film functions, live music, entertainment, photo ops, canapes and drinks.

The festival will kick off with the premiere of Ellie & Abbie (& Ellie’s Dead Aunt) on November 18th, with a Q&A with director Monica Zanetti plus a drink on arrival, roving entertainment, live DJ and drag performances.
