Asia Pacific Queer Film Festival Alliance Shorts | Sun 26 Feb 1pm, Event Cinemas George St | TIX: bit.ly/1SByBle
Queer Screen is proud to be a founding member of an alliance between seventeen queer film festivals throughout the Asia Pacific. To showcase the amazing queer films being made in this region the Alliance has put together a package of the best in new, Asian cinema.
At the end of each year a film is selected as the best Asia Pacific Queer short film. The 2016 winner was Indonesian film The Fox Exploits the Tiger’s Might by Lucky Kuswandi.
A highlight is The Threshold, about an Indian teen caught between a traditional upbringing full of gender-stereotypes, and his natural urge to identify with the opposite gender.
Full line-up to be announced shortly
