Taekwondo
In a beautiful country house in a chic suburb of Buenos Aires, Fernando (Lucas Papa) and his buddies are having a “boys only” weekend. Disconnected from the outside world, they bask in the sun, play in the pool, smoke pot and drink – naked or half-naked pretty much the entire time. Fernando decides to invite a newcomer, Germán (Gabriel Epstein), a close friend from his taekwondo class. Germán is quickly welcomed into the group. Fernando doesn’t realize, though, that Germán is attracted to men. Little by little, the two dudes get more intimate and the simmering sexual tension hits a boiling point. Assembling one of the hottest casts in gay movie history, prolific director Marco Berger has outdone himself with Taekwondo.

 

French Kisses
Get seduced by a collection of incredible gay shorts from France. In Apollo, we follow a teen, riddled with insecurities, who fantasizes about an ever more muscular body – and an even bigger banana. Herculaneum concerns two men and a volcano that growls. In The Body of Angels, Remi listens to the birds and falls asleep in the hedges while, Gabriel does something far more sinister. In En Retour, Jean-Marc meets Simon, a younger man, for dinner. After a promising start, the evening plunges into extreme drama. Ruptures follows Gabriel and Andre, ex-boyfriends who cross paths for the first time in ten years. Finally, in Electric July, Thomas and Victor visit an abandoned bridge and face their most secret fears and desires.

 

Paper Boys
After making an impulsive decision to change the course of his life, Cole (Kyle Cabral) moves to San Francisco, using his straight best friend’s engagement party as an excuse to escape a dead-end career and the memories of a passionate summer fling with a boy from New York. But when he arrives, he runs into that very former fling… and old feelings soon begin to resurface. After his friend, Daren (Nathan Brown), reveals that his recent engagement only happened by accident, Cole decides to use the mysterious powers of a re-discovered sketchbook to try to put all of their lives back on track. A short six-episode series, Paper Boys is a charming and thoughtful romance that is sure to leave you swooning.

 

1:54
Tim (Antoine-Olivier Pilon) is a shy sixteen-year-old student, dealing with the loss of his mother as well as his sexuality. The last four years of high school have been tough on him because of school bully Jeff (Lou-Pascal Tremblay). In his last year of school, Tim decides that wants to shine for once. He decides to stand up to Jeff by dethroning him in the 800m championship, the event Jeff is known for in school. But behind the competition and rivalry, a secret is wreaking havoc. After a personal video is shared on social media, Tim’s private life is about to explode into the public eye. Soon Tim finds himself pushed to the edge because of the pressure he endures, the edge where human limits reach the point of no return.

 

Sacrifice
The new 18-minute short film Sacrifice follows two protagonists as they enter a new phase in their relationship. James (Leigh Smith), a humanitarian rights lawyer, and Blake (Jesse Everett), a military officer, are continually torn apart by their overwhelming sense of duty – and their struggle to lead a “normal and quiet life.” They love each other, but their sense of duty is equally as important, especially due to Blake’s military background. Sacrifice aims to show that love is the greatest sacrifice of all, regardless of race, gender and everything in between. The film also pays tribute to those in the military history of Australia who were unrecognized in their service due to their sexuality.

A Skeleton in the Closet
When Manuel (Facundo Gambande) returns to his hometown on the occasion of his parents’ wedding anniversary, he has a bit of an ulterior motive. He’s planning to ask for money so that he can move to Denmark with his boyfriend. The last time he saw his family, he came out of the closet – and things have been tense ever since. When his boyfriend suddenly dumps him, Manuel finds himself diving head-first into an existential crisis. Now more in need of his family’s love and support than ever, an unexpected opportunity to reconnect presents itself. Featuring a terrifically endearing lead performance, A Skeleton in the Closet is a tender and heartfelt Argentinian family comedy-drama that you don’t want to miss.

 

Benjamin
British comedian Simon Amstell wrote and directed this charmingly offbeat gay romantic comedy about a filmmaker juggling the excitement of his upcoming film premiere with the fear and awkwardness of a burgeoning romance. Always ready with a self-defensive quip, indie film director Benjamin (Colin Morgan) nervously prepares for the premiere of his sophomore feature when he meets and falls for hard for Noah (Phenix Brossard), a young French musician. Will Benjamin’s insecurities and anxieties get in the way of success and happiness? Will his film be a critics-savaging disaster and he, a one-hit wonder? Benjamin is a charming, laugh-out-loud look at one man’s land mined road to success and love.

 

Bombshell
Bombshell is a short web comedy about Jay (Ellis David Perry), a queer transman navigating the shark-infested waters of LA’s gay dating scene. He’s young, he’s single, and he’s really just looking for fun and sex, meeting guys mostly on hookup apps. But, when the bedroom door closes, his private world becomes an arena for cis men and the questions they only feel safe to ask in private. Jay’s chosen family is with him on his journey, starting with his primary relationships with cis women: Selena (Jessica Rosas), his gluten-intolerant Angeleno best friend and Darlene (Cheril Vendetti), the Bostonian hairdresser/problematic fave who practically raised him and Penis Mascot (Charles Johnson), the cartoon caped penis who personifies his id. When he meets Joe (Havon Baraka), a kind genuine guy who’s really into him, he doesn’t exactly know how to act and must learn self respect to save any hope for his new relationship.

Three young artists – a trans opera singer and disc jockey, a Middle Eastern American performance artist and a gay film maker (played by Dino PetreraCatiriana Reyes and Robbie Gottlieb) – share a tiny studio apartment while they look for love and fame in New York City. It’s not an easy day-to-day life. They scrimp and save and scam and steal their way from month to month. Somehow they survive… but in the new world shared economy they are always just one click away from losing everything. Squirrels is a thoughtful indie about modern bohemia from prolific filmmaker Todd Verow.

Bromance
Welcome back to the fall of 1996. When four friends go on a camping trip in a remote part of Argentina, sexual tensions quickly bubble to the surface. Once in virtual seclusion by the beach, Juli, the only girl of the group, quickly recognizes that the boys seem to have a closer relationship than what she would consider “normal” (it’s only ’96, after all). The line between friendship and love fade further for two of the boys in particular as their desire becomes too much to bear. When what started as a simple getaway quickly becomes tinged with sex, romance and conflict, everyone is forced to confront who they really are for the very first time. Starring Javier De Pietro, the scrumptious star of Absent and Sexual Tension: Volatile, Bromance uses a clever found-footage aesthetic to deliver a thoughtful and supremely sexy meditation on young, burgeoning gay love.
