Film, Online, £5 / £1 con

Pull back the curtains, get yourself comfy and allow Fringe! to take you on a slow and sensual trip to the heart of queer desire. We understand that somethings cannot be rushed, so in these five shorts we take the time and dive deep into our feels and … feels.

OF THE RUINS YOU LEAVE ME | dir. Antoine Vazquez | France 2019 | 20'
In this mediative documentary go beyond the city, past the tourists and to the ruin, where the sounds of leather and spit fill the air as anonymous men cruise and quench their thirst… until to the city they return.

ONLY FOR THE NIGHT| dir. LaQuan Lewis | USA 2020 | 15’
The end of a hook up is rarely the start of a romance. But for Sam, a young trans man, connection is all he desires and an invitation from a handsome stranger may offer that.

CW: Needles

HAIKU FROM A DEAD POET | dir. Akira Kamiki | Brazil 2020 | 5’
A short poem of long distance longing from the streets of London for a boy an ocean away.

MORE THAN TWO | dir. Dan Dansen | Germany 2020 | 35’
A slow burning drama that goes beyond the tropes of three-way narratives, to offer a tender and honest story of three queers daring to live the utopian romance they desire, facing the realities of shared desires.

ROSA KAIRO | dir. Jacques Simha | Greece 2020 | 15
Around the commune queer bodies dance, smoke, fuck, bleach their hair all full of love. But a farewell shall bring with it the distances between all those who enter and leave.

CW: Nudity, Unsimulated Sex and Gun Violence.
