Leeds Queer Short Film Competition 2
For the third year in a row, Leeds Queer Film Festival has had the honour of curating the Queer Short Film programmes for LIFF. This second programme will take you on a journey from Brazil to Honduras to Czechia, offering a look at not only the struggles LGBTQ+ people face on a daily basis, but also the strength and joy that permeates and defines queer communities. The selection searches for answers to questions of identity, parenthood, and finding your people. As well as what to eat first when faced with a literal smorgasbord for the senses.
Showing online on Leeds Film Player from 3 November. Visit leedsfilm.com for more information.
