Ernesto
Ernesto (Federico Russo) is a teenager who wanders, in search of himself, through the streets of Rome. Chapter after chapter, time passes – and people just seem to disappear. But he continues to live impromptu relationships, causing pain to himself and to others. Taking refuge in his happy moments and in political ideologies, he believes he can save his soul from suffering… although life will make him to grow and move forward. Directed by partners Alice De Luca and Giacomo Raffaelli under their joint creative banner Freeres, Ernesto was shot in the 4:3 aspect ratio to give viewers a sense of the fragments of the lead character’s life – as if the film you’re watching were a lengthy re-working of the protagonist’s own memories.

 

Doors Cut Down
Guillermo (Israel Rodriguez) seems like your average high school student, but he’s hiding a secret. In private, he’s become an expert at cruising the mall for gay sex. Always looking for a new trick, he even resorts to seducing his much older English tutor. When he finally meets the hottest guy he’s ever seen, a man who may mean more to him than just a hot fuck, Guillermo finds himself suddenly conflicted. Newly restored in High Definition, this sexy 18-minute comedy is back to thrill audiences. A massive hit on the film festival circuit at the time of its release Doors Cut Down caused quite a controversy due to its frank and graphic depiction of a young man’s sexual exploration. It has become something of a gay short film classic.

 

I Am Happiness on Earth
Julián Hernández, one of Mexico’s premier gay filmmakers (Raging Sun, Raging Sky), wrote and directed this steamy tale of a film director struggling to find the barrier between his sexually charged reality and his equally arousing cinematic creations. Will lead character Emiliano (Hugo Catalan) be able to sustain his relationship, or will his lust for beauty and meaning lead him elsewhere? Furious couplings between gorgeous men include an exhilaratingly explicit play-within-a-play. An explosively sexy and heady film Hernández’s boldly poetic romance compares with such films as Fellini’s , Godard’s Contempt and others exploring the connections between love, sex, creativity and filmmaking.

 

Confessions
Take a peak under the surface of any gay man… and who knows what you’ll find? Originally conceived as a web-series, but collected into an anthology film by writer-director Mark Bessenger (The Last Straight Man, Bite Marks), the unique and wildly entertaining Confessions features ten individual segments, each four-to-fifteen minutes in length, in which numerous gay male characters disclose various secrets from the recesses of their psyches. Each segment utilizes a different storytelling genre – there’s something here for fans of comedy, horror, drama, romance, musicals and more. The cast also includes many faces that will be familiar to gay movie fans like Peter Stickles, Mark Cirillo and Dylan Vox.

 

Caught in a Landslide
A young man embarks on a journey through his mind. Through a combination of pharmaceuticals and alcohol, Jay (Wade Radford) walks through memories of true love and attempts to understand his broken heart. Nightly, his resident ghost appears – conjuring up visions of a lost summer romance; continuously taunting him with the opportunity to speak words previously unspoken. Jay wrestles with the past to separate fact from fiction, trying desperately to cast out the specter of emotional torment. In a film that combines imagery, poetry and the reality of loss, Caught in a Landslide takes the viewer from the beauty of England’s garden landscapes to the darkness of a heartbroken mind.

He’s devastated to lose his lover and will stop at nothing to win him back. The fallout of their break-up is divided into stages of desperate attempts to reunite, as well as rebounds that sometimes push them further apart and sometimes bring them closer together. This feature-length debut from award-winning short film director David Fardmar is a poignant, sexy and bittersweet romantic drama.

From Zero to I Love You
Jack (Scott Bailey) has what every man would want; a beautiful and successful wife, two smart and pretty daughters, a big house and a great job in a publishing house. He also has a secret that has been eating him alive for most of his life. Like many men and women, Jack choose the path of “normalcy” to the American Dream rather than face the fact that he’s attracted to men. He tries as hard as he can to be the faithful husband and good father until one night, he can’t do it anymore. Pete (Darryl Stephens) is just a guy in Philadelphia who happens to have a history of getting involved with married men. His father (Richard Lawson) and his soon-to-be stepmom (Leslie Zemeckis) are on him to find someone who’s actually available and to settle down. A chance encounter at a party leads Jack straight to Peter who will change his life forever and upend everything Jack has built. What was supposed to be a one-night stand turns into a once-in-a-lifetime love for both of them.

 

Love Blooms
Martin (Paul Delbreil), an aspiring young filmmaker, arrives in Paris in a desperate attempt to reunite with his first love, Lea (Adele Csech). Though lively, cultured and curious, Lea is not very happy. Although she doesn’t quite know what her future is going to look like, she’s pretty sure that it won’t include Martin as a romantic partner. Reluctantly, Martin begins to accept the fact that their relationship is truly over. Now he must find a way to rebuild his life from scratch. He’s just starting to do that when, much to his surprise, he ends up falling head-over-heels in love… with another man. Sexy, romantic, funny and poignant, Love Blooms takes a sensitive look at sexual discovery, young love and trying to find yourself, while struggling to become a mature adult.

 

Hawaii
The sexual tension practically spills off the screen in this sweaty, titillating romance from award-winning director Marco Berger (the same guy behind Absent, Plan B, Sexual Tension: Volatile and Testosterone). Hawaii follows Martin and Eugenio (Manuel Vignau and Mateo Chiarino), two former childhood friends who reunite during a hot summer in the Argentinean countryside. As they work together to restore Eugenio’s summer home, a game of power and desire ensues the two buddies to grapple with their sexual attraction and reconsider their relationship. With gorgeous cinematography, a lush setting and compelling lead performances, Hawaii is an intimate character study that percolates with lustful longing. Have a towel ready before you watch it. You are bound to break a sweat!

 

Children of God
Blond haired, blue-eyed Johnny (Johnny Ferro) travels to the island of Eleuthera intent on finding some artistic inspiration. After arriving, he meets the confident, attractive black musician Romeo (Stephen Tyrone Williams) and it is instantly clear that there is a spark between them. Although Romeo has a fiance, he has secretly played with boys on the side before – but Johnny is not just any boy, and soon their relationship becomes far more complex than a simple fling. Struggling to overcome rampant homophobia, and an anti-gay crusade erupting around them, it is going to take more than wishful thinking for their love to last. A beautifully shot, captivating romance, Children of God paints a universally relevant portrait of desire, sexual conflict, tolerance and self-acceptance.
