* FINALIST: BEST ACTOR (INTERNATIONAL NARRATIVE) *
What happens when the most exciting thing in town is a man-made beach? You get Brisbane, a city in a tracksuit where sequins come to die. If Brisbane was a gay man, she would have moved to Sydney years ago and developed a fake Elle MacPherson accent.
So how do the Brisgays survive? They go to breakfast. They glare. They go to brunch. They loathe. They go to Instagram. They judge. They go to Grindr. They regret. Then they end up at one of the local gay bars and wonder why.
Gay and Loathing in Bris Vegas follows the lives of seven gay men over one weekend in Brisbane when they discover “what Gays in Vegas Stays in Vegas… Bris Vegas!”
Gay and Loathing in Bris Vegas is selected for #NZWF19 in the International Narrative category.
