By Gaze International Dublin LGBT Film Festival with BeLonG To Youth Project
LGBT shorts for the young and the young at heart
These wonderful LGBT shorts have to be among some of the most uplifting films in the festival this year and while we present them in association with BeLonG To, they’re sure to please filmgoers of any age group who remember their first negotiations with sexuality.
We kick off with Stand Up, the BeLonG To short that this year raised a huge challenge to homophobic bullying. From the same team, and winner of our Absolut Gaze Filmmaker Project award this year, Hold on Tight shows couples talking about the joys and fears of displaying affection in public. Thinking Straight gets gender confused as a girl dates a girl, thinking the girl thinks she’s a boy. Get it? From Brazil, I Don’t Want to Go Back Alone is a gorgeous story about a young blind gay kid who develops a huge crush on the new boy in school who walks him home each day. In Friday’s Child, cute but awkward Rune dreams of his first kiss with older boy Benjamin. Franswa Sharl takes us on family holiday, with the Logan and Bishop families who decide that pretty little Cassie Bishop should partake in the Miss Fiji competition. However, young Greg Logan, who is beginning to discover his gender identity, has other ideas.
This is really great gang of films that just bursts with good positive queer energy. Not to be missed.
Some shorts are foreign language with English subtitles.
