The film selection includes short films made by both British and international film makers, which  offers something for everyone and includes a number of London premieres.

GFEST artistic director Niranjan Kamatkar is really excited about the upcoming film screening events, “Everything this year takes you on a narrative journey that is unique, thought-provoking and thoroughly enjoyable. The films explore race, politics and young people’s sexualities in  contemporary settings. It is a rare chance to watch some of the short films on a big screen.”

This year short film screenings include award winning filmmaker Darius Clark Monroe’s film ‘Slow’ which deals with a blind date and the possibility that it might bring, a documentary film by Nola Grace Gaardmand, ‘Home for the Golden Gays’ focusing on refuge for elderly and vulnerable gays in Manila since 1969 and Jason Bradbury’s ‘We Once Were Tide’ which looks at Anthony and Kyle spending their last night together before Kyle moves away, leaving Anthony to look after his terminally ill mother.


The festival will also feature Hong Khaou’s  film Spring, debuted at Sundance this year, Sydney based director Craig Boreham, Liane Lang and Betsy Kalin amongst others covering trends in lesbian culture, amateur boxing, transition in relationships and teenage secrets.
