Queer & Here- LGBT Shorts

Queer & Here- LGBT Shorts


Join us for an evening of LGBT short films to mark the 50th anniversary of the partial decriminalisation of homosexuality in England & Wales. Chosen from the _LEEDS INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL_ archive, these films are a mixture of powerful, thought-provoking and uplifting LGBT stories from around the world. The programme includes Balcony, which is the first UK film in ten years to win prestigious Iris Prize (Cardiff’s International LGBT Short Film Prize).

DOWNHILL (Stelios Kammitsis, Cyprus, 14min)
On a sunny day in September, she marches down the hill of a Mediterranean island. He is driving down the road with his old car and picks her up. As they drive downhill, the missing pieces of the story unravel, and the news that so much upset her is revealed.

VENUS (Faye Carr-Wilson, UK, 5 min) - pictured
A short documentary dealing with issues of disability and female empowerment through the subject Venus Dimilo, a female drag performer.

A NIGHT IN TOKORIKI (Roxana Stroe, Romania, 18min)
In an improvised night club called “Tokoriki” the whole village celebrates Geanina’s 18th birthday. Her boyfriend and Alin will give her a most surprising gift, one that nobody will ever forget

BALCONY (Toby Fell-Holden, UK, 17 min)
Balcony is set on a housing estate and features Tina, a troubled teenage girl, who falls for Dana, whose family are from Afghanistan. The films shocks and surprises but not in the way you might expect.

THESE C*CKSUCKING TEARS (Dan Taberski, USA, 16 min)
Winner of the SXSW documentary jury award in 2016, the film explores the life of gay country singer Patrick Haggerty who wrote and recorded as Lavender Country, an American country music band formed in 1972.

THE MAD HALF HOUR (Leonardo Brezicki, Argentina/ Denmark, 22 min)
The mad half hour refers to a condition usually experienced by indoor house cats once a day, but can humans experience it too? Juan and Pedro venture into the night together and stray, like cats, through the streets of Buenos Aires.
