Fringe! Queer Film & Arts Fest presents a screening of short films from around the world that celebrate queer bodies as sites of creativity and resistance.

Starting with the granddaddy of male drag, Diane Torr, this programme glides on contemporary counter-currents of queer possibility. From documentary explorations of fat positivity to black queer femme poetics; trans power in Brazil and surreal animated stories of sensuality and subversion.    

Each in their different ways, these short films centre the body as a site of creativity, resistance and expansion. A celebration of community building and vivid ways of being and loving.
