This is a really cool event- whether you are a film whizz or not. This short film showcase is an evening that will celebrate queer cinema; you’ll get the chance to watch 7 short films in the luxury surrounds of the Cinema in the Power Station before drinks and networking afterwards. The shortlist has been selected from hundreds of submissions from brand new directors, so these are unlike anything you’ll have seen before. Check out what you’ll be watching below.
