Melbourne Queer Film Festival and Cinema Nova are proud to welcome the International Gay and Lesbian Aquatics Championships to Melbourne in 2020.

The Shiny Shrimps (FRENCH: Les Crevettes Pailletées) is a film that is no doubt very familiar to IGLA athletes. We are very excited to be bringing this sneak peek to the big screen ahead of the 30th Melbourne Queer Film Festival in March 2020.

Matthias Le Goff, an Olympic champion at the end of his career, makes a homophobic statement on TV. His punishment: coach the Shiny Shrimps, a flamboyant and amateur gay water-polo team. They have only one thing in mind: to qualify for the Gay Games in Croatia where the hottest international LGBT athletes compete. It's the start of a bumpy and joyful ride - Faster, Higher, Stronger.


"A riotously funny remoulding of the underdog sports movie. Cedric Le Gallo and Maxime Govare’s comedy is laced with the small snippets of experience that elevate it beyond a simple, feel-good fantasy."


- Clarisse Loughrey, Independent
