Teaming up with Peccadillo Pictures – one of the UK’s most recognised distributors of LGBT and world cinema titles – Into Film have curated a programme of shorts chronicling aspects of the youth LGBTQ+ experience in Britain and around the world. Dealing with serious issues around bullying, cruelty, and political persecution, as well as tentative explorations of sexuality, first kisses, coming out and unabashed celebration, the programme works equally well as a compilation or just to dip in and watch one or two titles, demonstrating the extraordinary changes that have taken place for young LGBTQ+ people around the world, but also how much work there is still to do.

Please note: these shorts are also available to watch online via Vimeo, as well as on DVD. Please contact your club coordinator for the link.

Closets (2015, UK, English, dir Lloyd Eyre-Morgan, 18 mins):

This light-hearted drama tells the story of Henry, a teenager struggling with his sexuality in 1986. Hiding in his wardrobe, he time travels to the present day where he meets up with a similar teenager, Ben, occupying his same bedroom 30 years later.

Silly Girl (2016, UK, English, dir Hope Dickson Leach, 5 mins):

'Silly Girl' is about the first time you are noticed, the first time someone sees you for who you are, and the transformative nature of that moment.

Aban and Khorshid (2014, US, Persian, dir Darwin Serink, 13 mins):

If you only had a few hours left to live, what would you share with the love of your life? Together Aban and Khorshid explore this question during the hours before sentencing for their crime of loving each other.

No Matter Who (2015, France, French, dir Anne-Claire Jaulin, 18 mins):

It’s summertime and a troop of young girls are headed to scout camp. Together Marie and Lise discover the first spark of desire, a desire at odds with their group’s morality and principles.

James Dean (2010, UK, English, dir Lucy Asten-Elliott, 7 mins):

A family tries its best to get out of their driveway for a holiday break, but one of their daughters has decided it’s finally time to bring out the ‘real’ her.

Caged (2013, Netherlands, Dutch, dir Dylan/Lazlo Tonk, 14 mins):

David and Neils spend most of their time working out together on the local sports ground. Meanwhile their gang of friends harass a local boy for being gay. But their tight friendship is about to be thrown off balance by a secret Neils has been keeping.

Happy & Gay (2014, US, English, dir Lorelei Pepi, 10 mins):

A queer revisionist history of 1930’s black and white cartoons, 'Happy & Gay' is a musical carton inspired by the power of representation.

An Afternoon (2014, Denmark, Danish, dir Søren Green, 8 mins):

Today is the day! Mathias is in love with Frederik and now he’s going to tell him just that… But when the moment of truth arrives is he brave enough to make the first move?

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
