Relationships Australia Victoria (RAV) is proud to sponsor a film at this year’s Melbourne Queer Film Festival (MQFF). The annual film festival has been held for over 25 years and shows a wide range of LGBTIQ-themed films, including features and documentaries. This is the sixth consecutive year that RAV has sponsored the festival.
This year we are sponsoring the Melbourne premiere of the film The Ring Thing, which is an ambitious exploration of the nature of commitment and how the prospect of marriage can raise challenges even within a loving relationship.
When Kristen (Nicole Pursell) misinterprets a ring Sarah (Sarah Wharton) shows her as the beginning of a marriage proposal, it reveals a couple in vastly different places in their relationship. Suddenly, deep-rooted insecurities about marriage and the fear of divorce flood to the surface, threatening to alter their connection forever. Hoping to understand her own ambivalence about marriage, documentary filmmaker Sarah sets out to interview same-sex couples about their relationships
The Ring Thing will screen at 6pm on Thursday 22 March at the Australian Centre of the Moving Image (ACMI) in Melbourne’s CBD. More information, the movie trailer and tickets are available on the festival’s website.
