THE CONNECTION
UK - 15 min - Dir. Heidi Jones
An aspiring comic struggles to

make a name for herself on the

male-dominated comedy club

circuit. After an interaction with

a fan leads to obsession and

stalking, she must navigate the waters of toxic fandom and online/offline boundaries.

KIM

Just a day in the life of Kim; a friendly, well-meaning, man-eating siren, and an unlikely friendship explored as a stop motion mockumentary.

TRACKS

When two young women meet on a train, unbeknownst to them, their crossing paths will lead to an encounter which changes the course of their lives for good. 

A QUEER CITY
UK – 8 min – Dir. George Hellings
Young drag artists navigate the

rising drag scene in Norwich, a

place where their actions appear

to be going unnoticed by the

rest of the world. We explore this

close-knit new wave of creatives carving a place for themselves to express their queerness and identity through performance and visual artistry

On the surface, Tom and Kelly

have a passionate, loving

relationship - but Tom has a

HOLLYWOOD IS IN HER HEAD
FRANCE – 14 min – Dir. Lou Cheruy Zidi

Bills are piling up as Lila and her son scrape by on petty theft and working the system. As Max discovers the truth about how they’re really keeping their heads above water, he must decide where his alliances lie.
