Program: Shorts Programs

Try out Frameline’s annual collection of polished films about young gay men—and their angst. One-sided affection, hookups, and unexpected encounters make for a compelling and unforgettable shorts program.

Two of these exceptional short films are fresh from hit screenings at this year’s Sundance and Berlin Film Festivals. In Blokes from Chile, a young boy in a tenement complex cannot get any privacy at home, especially as he yearns for the soccer-playing neighbor across the way. Spring is a sadomasochistic adventure between two men that starts off as a sexual thrill, but the encounter ends up having different expectations for them both.

The In-Between is a touching study of expectations of monogamy. We Once Were Tide takes place on England’s Isle of Wight, where Anthony is torn between his boyfriend and dependent mother. A homophobic ex basketball star is forced to face the reality that he is gay in Triple Standard. From Brazil, Family Affair tells the story of the adorable young Rossi, who tries to fit in with his older brother and his buddies—with surprising results.
