The WILDsound Short Film Festival has been around for a while now, showcasing short films from across the globe. On Thursday, June 22, the festival presents a program of LGBTQ+ films from India, Israel, Australia and the States. Curated by Kierston Drier, it looks enticing.
One of the films, Masc Only, was directed by Drew Droege. Many of us remember Drew from his hilarious impersonation of Chloe Sevigny, which he brought to a Bitch Salad show a few years ago. The other films span a wide range of concepts, from lesbians in anguish, a Jewish boy forced to denounce his gay desires, a Hindi transwoman in love, a dance film, and a film about a woman struggling with loneliness.
Short films are more popular than ever, but they seldom receive as much attention as features. Still, a good movie is a good movie, at any length. This popular event (the last 58 screenings have sold out) takes place at the Carlton Cinema and is not only PWYC but also licensed. For more information check out the Wildsound info page at
