This year we foreground our festival mission to celebrate “the art of film” with shorts programmes that gleefully play with theme and content. The Art of Imagination, The Art of Cruising, The Art of Experience and The Art of Dress actively queer each of our themes to bring you diverse selections of new shorts that shine a light on the sheer artistry of LGBTQ+ lives.Clothing for queers is a means of armour, alignment, protest and expression. Its importance within the community, though sometimes subtle, cannot be overstated. The tailor-made selection of films in The Art of Dress provides a glimpse at how garms can open minds and alter lives, with costume design that serves much more than just a look.Programmed by Alice LinehanNails & Beauty Dir.
