Fun In Girls Shorts

Public processing, princess meets maiden, missed connections, inopportune allergy attacks, Bollywood drag king dreams and unrequited lovers—bring a date, find a date, heck, dump a date at this stellar offering of queer women’s shorts!

In the anti-romantic comedy Coffee & Pie a couple must come to term with the fact that theirs is a love that could never be. Emmy kisses a girl on the playground and is left feeling isolated and alone. The Grand High Council of Fairy Tale Rules and Standards sends her a hetero-normative fairytale to set her down the ‘right’ path in The Maiden and The Princess. Moleskin notebooks and serendipity make two hotties cross paths in Half. It's hard searching for love in the modern world, especially when you're a severely allergic bisexual woman who must ask Do You Have a Cat? Good thing you have a rockin’ bestie (Buffy’s Amber Benson) for advice in finding Mr. or Ms. Right! As a young girl, Fawzia Mirza fell under the spell of Bollywood heroines and their promise of love and feminine perfection. As an adult, she looks back and re-imagines an epic romance in The Queen of My Dreams. In postwar Japan, Tsuyako, a factory worker and mother, must decide between duty and love, her family and her freedom.
