Leeds Queer Short Film Competition 1
Leeds Queer Film Festival is proud to be partnering again with LIFF to select short films focusing on LGBT+ stories. This first programme takes viewers on a journey from Argentina, where a father tenderly accepts and supports his trans son, all the way to Sweden where young queers pull pranks on each other as they xuberantly celebrate life. In between, there’s poetry examining queerness and colonialism, an almost-romance between two men in prison, a woman mourning the death of her brother by connecting with his partner, and squatters in a French house with a past.
Showing online on Leeds Film Player from 3 November. Visit leedsfilm.com for more information.
