The stylish short doc A Queer City is now available on-demand

From Mattioli Productions and director George Hellings, the new short documentary A Queer City focuses on three young drag artists as they navigate the rising drag scene in Norwich, a place where their actions appear to be going unnoticed by the rest of the world.

The film’s colorful subjects open up about what their drag means to them and how, by finding a welcoming group of people in Norwich with similar attitudes and camp sensibilities, they have been able to express their queerness and identity freely through performance and visual artistry. Despite sometimes finding it difficult to find their way as marginalized individuals, they have hopes for a future they plan on carving themselves as a close-knit new wave of creatives.

Watch the trailer for the wildly original new queer horror short Innocent Boy

Off a lonely Texas highway, a group of hustlers prey on the desperados who come for sex and drugs. When a murderous cowboy (Kamy D. Bruder) rolls into town, Penny (Unique Jenkins), a young trans boy sees an opportunity to feed the emotional hunger that has long been ignored by his neglectful Momma (Michael Vincent Berry). As the boys fall one-by-one, Penny is caught between the Cowboy’s lustful rage, and the greed and corruption that Momma represents.

Don’t miss the sexy, stylish and provocative new short film MASS

In the brand-new 12-minute short film MASS, Trey (writer-director-star Linus Ignatius) finds his usual body dysmorphia is compounded by the fact that he is HIV-positive, and pretty freshly diagnosed. He’s soon stuck in the middle of a perfect storm of “I am not enough” feelings.
