Shorts: Fun in Shorts: The Joker Tarot

In this uproarious batch of hilarious LGBTQ+ short films, Frameline’s annual Fun in Shorts program takes a comic approach to some of our deepest queer anxieties — whether it be flying, sex, social niceties, daddy issues, incidental murder, or the general miseries of apartment dwelling.

Films showing in this program:

AC Unit

Starring Rain Valdez and Shaan Dasani, Agents of Change - Project: Polymer is a spy-genre film that centers a fully a queer and transgender cast while bringing issues facing the environment to the forefront.

A young dominatrix-in-training receives an unexpected client.

Dilating for Maximum Results

9 mins

A six-year-old butch Latina and her imaginary best friend Boo poorly navigate the drawn-out pains of puberty.
