SECTION: Short | Shorts Programs

Be delighted by every twist and turn in this quirky collection of queer women’s shorts—where nothing is quite as it seem. Featuring grandmothers, BFFs, brides-to-be, and rival siblings, this year’s selection runs the full gamut.

Gaze in wonder at Grace and Betty, as Grace finally decides to come out to her grandmother, who has a big secret of her own. In Pop Rox, we discover that telling your BFF that you’re in love with them is probably best done without a third wheel along for the ride. And what does it mean to be Dick Sisters? How about accidentally killing a guy you both dated and then falling in love with each other, all in the same night? In Lesbehonest: I’ll Be All Right, we catch Blaire, a womanizing lesbian, who after an impulsive break-up ends up with too many dates at the same party. A surprise twist is unveiled in Children Alike when a brother decides to take his new girlfriend home to meet his sister. Ice Cold presents a wedding day to remember, as a blushing bride has her best and worst day ever. And well, it’s just too true: Dyke Bars Never Last. Bay Area electronic pop artist Sapphic Lasers explores the heartbreak of the closures of all the wonderful dyke bars.
