Shortly loves Queer Films
Queer films? Short films? Short, queer films? Queer, short films? Call it what you want, but we’re calling all rebels of film to be part of our art-meets-debate Pride event on July 31, 2017.
Join us for a dose of art and lively discussion at our special short-film screening at Pride House. Not only will we screen three hard-to-find and challenging queer short films, we’ll also tackle the issues facing the queer film industry from the short-film perspective during our panel discussion curated by Anna Linder.
Why? because at Shortly we love film. And because we’re not the film police – we are the film rebels. We love to challenge Hollywood’s creative shortcomings, the conventions of the existing short film scene, and the elitism of those who oppose art for everyone.
We’ll be screening:
- Strip-Tease of Marie Louise Ekman, 1982, 3 min, Animation
- Manhood of Mia Engberg, 1999, 10 min, Documentary
- MAN of Maja Borg, 2016, 12 min, Experimental
Curated by Anna Linder
