SFFF LGBTQ+ Shorts Program


Weather Talk (Dir. Brandon Shypkowski) (17 mins.)

A father, recovering from a heart attack, goes on a road trip with his closeted son across

the United States. A new bond forms between these two estranged people.

Trophy Boy (Dir. Emrhys Cooper) (11 mins.)

James, a sexy, youthful sought-after instagram star in high-society and self-proclaimed

‘Trophy,’ is dumped by his wealthy live-in benefactor. Now he must learn that the real

world is not the facade he’s built for himself on social media.

Gloria (Dir. Christine Chen) (12 mins.)

In 1966, a gender questioning teen from a conservative southern home accepts a secret

invitation from a beautiful drag queen and resolves, despite the threat of arrest and

familial rejection, to publicly crossdress for the first time at an underground gay dance


Gorgeous (Dir. Rob Lebow) (17 mins.)

The Gorgeous Project promotes progressive gender concepts and features an

ensemble of over 100 iconic portraits and personal stories from today’s most

visible LGBTQIA+Advocates, Artists and Entertainers, consisting of national gallery

exhibitions, a masterfully curated book and a documentary film.

Home Grown (Dir. Kelsey Fox) (25 mins.)

Two queer/genderqueer, self-proclaimed progressives who flunk out of city life and wind

up back home in their neo-liberal town. Comedy ensues when the pair try to bring their

old home up to date with their newly claimed identities, and when supposedly aligned

ideologies clash.

All We Are (Dir. Will Stewart) (16 mins.)

After meeting through a personal ad, two men form what they believe will be nothing

more than a fantasy-motivated fling—no names, no information. But with so much

chemistry, real feelings put a wrench in their plans and a true relationship begins tofeel

like a possibility, until a confession threatens to pull them apart.
