Who said queers can’t have romantic comedies? Our bittersweet and brilliantly funny closing film Top 3 takes us along for a ride, following the love story of two highschool sweethearts. Obsessive list-maker Anton falls for bright-eyed, audacious David the moment they meet. Their whirlwind romance matures into a relationship spanning continents, but what do you do when you realise that your dreams and ambitions are in direct competition to those of your soulmate? This gorgeous Swedish animation, in all its kaleidoscopic, psychedelic glory, perfectly captures that feeling when you are in love with someone that you just can’t be with.
We absolutely fell in love with Top 3 and couldn’t wait to bring it to London so you can feel all warm and fuzzy on a cold November night.
