Bubbling – Rated 12A

Director: Chang Che Ming, Taiwan, 23 Mins

Guang has difficulty focusing during school choir. He’s distracted by something more enticing than singing. When a charismatic new student arrives, Guang’s curiosity and sexual desire is taken to a new level.

Malwa Khushan – Rated U

Director: Preeti kanungo, Sourav Yadav, India, 20 Mins

Coming of age story of two sisters Malwa and Khushan exploring sexuality and attraction in their adolescent years. A new girl arrives in Khushan’s classroom, and she starts developing feelings for her.

Single: Meat Cutes – Rated 15

Director: Tilly Robba & Steph Jowett, Australia, 12 Mins

We are first introduced to Luke, Bridie and Tilly as they rideshare to the pub for their separate dating-app dates. Disaster ensues on all counts, and the three end the night crammed in a skip-bin outside the pub—dateless and still single.

Diomysus – Rated 12A

Director: Emily Elizabeth Morus-Jones, Wales, 5 Mins

An experimental film where a group of mice (voiced by members of the UK polyamorous community whose identities are masked using puppetry) discuss their experiences of polyamory. Diomysus asks the question – are we (the audience) more open to taboo ideas if unconscious bias is eliminated?
