Bi Candy - Shorts Program


78m
SECTION: Short | Shorts Programs

Gender- and sexually-fluid shorts take center stage in this year’s batch of Bi Candy. From challenges in relationships and online dating, to running into exes at parties these shorts dive into expectations and personal hang-ups with honesty and humor.

Monogamish follows Sagar and Nishi and explores the dynamics and strength of two non-traditional couples in which agreements are made and boundaries are challenged. Brannan & the Monosexuals: Double Booked brings a whole new meaning to “double dating” when Brannan inadvertently makes online dates with a guy and a girl on the same night. In Tell Me Twice, Natalie spontaneously runs into her ex at a party and is forced to confront her feelings. In Noodle, a hard situation gets even harder when a straight guy tries to cheat on his girlfriend with a revenge-seeking lesbian. In The Feels: Season 2, Episode 1, “Different,” we find that navigating adulthood is never easy as we follow Charlie, an awkward and endearing illustrator and high school teacher who comedically stumbles through work and love. In the funny and provocative coming-of-age tale Morning After, five friends explore their sexual identities and realize that they may not fall within society’s clean-cut lines in poignant and moving ways.
