22-01-21 …NOW, HERE'S WHAT WE HAVE TO SAY: Five Shorts from Fringe!

FLOURISH, dir. Heather María Acs

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. We at Fringe! are thrilled to present these five hand-picked shorts, that put into sound and vision what words never could.

Stick around post-screening for the wonderful Crayola joining us for a classic Fringe! Drag Bedtime Story. 


Programmed by Fringe!’s Grant Gulczynski and Martha Kate Margetson. 95'

Please note, this screening can only be accessed by UK audiences. This programme contains flashing imagery, nudity, bloody violence and some gore.


Presented in partnership with Fringe! Queer Film & Arts Festival.

When your body is the canvas, does the performance really end when the audience leave? Closing out our programme is this delicate and eerily relevant meditation on art and space.
