Queerguru is so excited that the London Short Film Festival hosts its 18th (and first!) digital edition from 15th – 24th January 2021. We need as much excellent culture as this to sustain us and also lift our spirits during all these COVID Lockdowns.
Each January, LSFF hosts ten days of short form, conversation and multidisciplinary curation. they present between 250-500 British and international films each edition, collaboratively programmed down from 5000+ open submissions, alongside Special Events and an industry offering of workshops, panels and discussion for filmmakers and workers.
Us queers know a thing or two about banding together and getting creative when times get tough. From revenge fantasies in France, to the unity of three young friends in Brazil, we never stop at pushing forward the collaborative art of film to tell our stories. Fringe! are thrilled to present these five hand-picked shorts, that put into sound and vision what words never could.
From Brazil BEAT IS PROTEST – FUNK BY FEMALE OPTICS by Mayara Efil A pulsating documentary about a sisterhood of female musicians claiming their space in the underground funk scene of São Paulo.
