A newcomer to the Parallel Competition, Short & Queer was born of a burning desire to bring the queer community into sharper focus. We want to support their uniqueness and universality, shine a light on their reality and identify discrimination.
The films in this program, a mixed bag of form and style, are hot, vibrant, short, and definitely queer: from the extravagant performances of a group of Colombian activists, to the kindness of a mechanic’s workshop that offers a safe working space for minorities; to the agonizing journey of two people walking a city’s dark streets, to Victor's unlikely encounter with a sex worker; from the power of shame in a homophobic society, to the sweet madness of Pentola's romance with Batman, not to mention the tribulations of the flamboyant Habbib and his cape thief!
It’ll be a wild ride!
