Short films

Funkele (2021)

Directed by Nicole Jachmann | Netherlands | Dutch

Fifteen-year-old Robin and her best friend Merel share everything and are inseparable. Except for Robin's budding sexuality and curiosity. Robin is ashamed of this and keeps it anxiously hidden.

Blue Moon (2021)

Directed by Emily Ruhl | USA | English

Blue Moon is a vibrant vignette of a love story that takes place in a single night. It follows two young women through Los Angeles as they explore the depths of themselves and one another. A beautiful portrait of how nurturing mutual vulnerability can turn into pure magic.

Yes Goddess (2022)

Directed by Randa Jarrar | USA | English

A group of femmes gather for a kink party for the first time since pandemic.

Melting Point (2022)

Directed by Mindy Stricke | Canada | English

Melting Point is a queer, experimental erotic short that captures the heat between two lovers, literally. Shot with a thermal camera, the film records the scene using temperature instead of light, revealing new ways of seeing pleasure, play, and desire.

Minutes (2021)

Directed by Alix Eve, Olivia Dowd | UK | English

From nervous first dates to late night arguments, a relationship in microcosm and a chance for something new?

Five Song Tour (2021)

Directed by Chloe Jury-Fogel | USA | English

Jules, a nomadic, independent singer-songwriter, travels from city to city, playing gigs for anyone who will listen. She doesn’t have much, just a guitar in the backseat of her beat-up Ford Taurus, which often serves as a hotel room when she can’t scrounge up enough to get herself a real bed. When her solo tour makes a stop in a quaint town, she anxiously invites her ex-girlfriend, Phoebe, who’s attending medical school nearby. Jules and Phoebe reconnect almost instantly, and Jules is suddenly faced with everything she’s been missing.

Work (2021)

Unable to move on from a breakup, Gabriela impulsively drops into an old job, where she unexpectedly runs into a friend from her past.

My First Choice (2021)
