Melbourne Queer Film Festival

When the agenda is to divide, we need stories that unite

Agency: JWT


Using voice data from the hate speech of Cory Bernardi and Pauline Hanson to inform the animation of MQFF’s new brand icon, the campaign takes negative messages and turns them into art, telling a visual story of strength and love.
The resulting 30 second film launching as a cinema trailer this week, turns the tables on a hostile and conservative political agenda to demonstrate MQFF’s ability to overpower hate with inclusive stories that promote tolerance and diversity.
