21 January 2022 ••• We are testing the soft, fleshy boundaries of gender and desire in this programme of tactile tentacled fantasies, inter-dimensional badass biker babez, ecosexual bliss, and inter-species relationship goals. So, put on your fanciest fronds, manicure those claws, turn out the tentaculum, and join us for a night of mind-expanding passion and progressive genitalia. With some short film festival favourites and brand new work, this is going to be a late night of short films to remember.

Presented as part of the official selection of London Short Film Festival 2022

Founded in 2003, London Short Festival (LSFF) is a BAFTA-qualifying, internationally regarded independent short film festival.

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.

LSFF exists to spotlight a multiplicity of filmmakers, visual artists and creatives, across intersections and with a commitment to peripheral voices. They pride themselves on an 18 year ethos of giving screen-space and visibility to unconventional and thoroughly independent filmmaking, and our programming seeks to situate the contemporary in dialogue with its history and the world at large. LSFF is both a platform where filmmakers can cut their teeth and define their careers, and a celebrator of the archival treasures and talent that got us here.
