Bind – 3:18

A glimpse into the trans Asian diaspora, BIND follows the events that occur when Jules gets a surprise visit from their mother... and their chest binder.

2 Dollars – 14:44

A troubled office worker finds the courage to leave their working life behind and pursue their dreams.

Real Fantasies – 18:40

Gay romance with a dark twist set in a yoga studio in a pre-pandemic New York.

Repugnant – 12:33 

Grace must prove to the world that her pray-away-the-gay dog therapy works by trying to “cure” Fergis the pug of his homosexuality.

The Night it Rained – 12:47

Set in San Francisco, The Night It Rained depicts the experiences of a queer, college student named Malachi. He is determined to stay enrolled in his college’s program and turns to sex work as a way to make money while having greater control over his daily schedule. Unfortunately, the demands of college prove more difficult than he expects, and Malachi loses his scholarship due to sustained poor academic performance. The stress of losing his scholarship pushes him further into sex work, and in riskier entanglements. After reaching his breaking point, Malachi finally makes a vulnerable call home.

Jeff Drives You 16:47

A lonely gay man falls in love with an artificially intelligent car over the course of a road trip.

10 Minute Intermission

Leap – 2:38

On the rooftop of a massive building, surrounded by the blazing Buenos Aires’ skyline, two friends are taking a relaxing sunbath. In the flash of an instant an unexpected event takes place, which will call into question their friendship and leave them both on the brink of a resolution that could change their lives.

Before the Eruption – 9:06

Although a volcanic eruption can occur without any prior signal, volcanoes will most likely issue different types of warnings before the eruption begins. We barely saw it coming.

Her and Her – 12:53

Her & Her have been seeing each other for a few months now and are both very much in love. But they have just moved in to Her small one-bedroom flat and of course she’s brought the dog! Suddenly Her home is their home and the realities of their differences come to full view. Different backgrounds, cultures, upbringings, rules. One uses poetry and the other music to tell their stories.

Road Kill – 15:40

Tillie's lonely life as a roadkill removal worker is destabilized when Wanda, a lively stranger, comes to town.

A Q&A with Zack Baker and Will Moon of Reel Queer
