Supporting the Melbourne Queer Film Festival

Relationships Australia Victoria
1:00pm Friday, 15 February 2019

Relationships Australia Victoria (RAV) is proud to sponsor a film at this year’s Melbourne Queer Film Festival (MQFF), which runs from 14 to 25 March 2019.

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 will be RAV’s seventh consecutive year supporting the festival.

This year, we are sponsoring the Colombian film Eva & Candela, which “traces the love lives of two women, a director and her actress, as they traverse the rocky path of love, domesticity and infidelity. Swinging back and forth between the past and present, we trace the developing love story of Eva (Silvia Varón) and Candela (Alejandra Lara) as they first meet on a film set and find a creative kindred spirit in each other, which eventually blossoms into love. Over the course of years, we see the women’s relationship swing from giddy highs to painful truths as they try to find a way back to the passions they once shared creatively and personally. Brilliantly portrayed by the two female leads, this is a bittersweet and intimate look at the constantly evolving nature of love."

Eva & Candela will screen at 6:15pm on Friday 15 March at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) in Melbourne’s CBD.
