SHORT CURCIT IRIS PRIZE SHORTS
For the third year running, the Iris International Gay and Lesbian Short Film Prize competition brings together the best queer shorts from around the globe to GAZE, and this year’s selection shows a sector of the movie industry at the top of its game.
In Remember Me in Red, the friends of recently deceased transgender woman, Fidelia have to deal with her Latino parents, who expect to see a man being buried. In The Queen Bobby, a young Korean-American works out his prom queen fantasies late night at his parents’ dry cleaners. In Disarm two men meet online for a hook-up, but after an initial confrontation, they fall into conversation and have something they did not expect: a connection. In The Armoire, 11 year-old Aaron plays a game of hide and seek in which his friend Tony is never found. /Tools 4 Fools/ is a hilarious mock infomercial for refurbished dildos. From the ridiculous to the sublime, the difficult to the delirious, this shorts selection is one you won’t forget in a hurry.
