Boys
Following one man through two timelines decades apart, Boys is a gripping and compassionate study of first love and the lingering sting of loss. We first meet Jonas (BPM, Sauvage/Wild and Knife+Heart star Felix Maritaud) in the present where he’s having a rough go of it. He’s prone to starting fights at the local gay bar and his boyfriend has had enough of his infidelity and alcohol-soaked antics. His volatile behavior may stem from his past. The film flashes back to 1997, where Jonas meets a rebellious new student who will become his crush. The pair venture out on their first proper date, unaware that a traumatic incident is about to change their lives forever. Charrier teases out the details in this searing mystery/thriller/drama.

 

Sexual Tension: Volatile
A pulsating collection from acclaimed director Marco Berger, Sexual Tension: Volatile weaves together six sexually-charged short stories of erotic male bonding! A young man feels the adrenaline rush of his sexy tattooist’s needle in Ari while in The Cousin, a cute boy has a taboo attraction for a family member. Two straight buddies show each other how to make love to a woman in The Other One, while a man with Broken Arms receives a sensual sponge bath from a male nurse. Love is questionable when a broken shower brings a married man and an innkeeper together and in Workout two muscular men begin to explore each other chiseled bodies. So many voyeuristic pleasures await you in this stunning anthology film!

 

Atomic Age
An exploration of the underlying sexual tension between two close male friends, Atomic Age charts the evolution of burgeoning youthful sexuality over the course of one night in Paris. Victor and Rainer (Eliott Paquet and Dominik Wojcik) are typical young French hipsters on their way to Paris, swigging Red Bull, bantering about the Stone Roses, and musing about what awaits them. Checking into a club, Victor hits on the girls, while Rainer spikily rebuffs the advances of a male admirer. Testosterone surges, bravado leads to a face-off… just another night on the town. Until it’s not. This character study captures what it’s like to be young and fumbling through a sexual awakening while negotiating the delicate bonds of friendship.

 

Rapture in Blue
Like a David Lynch thriller filmed through a queer lens, writer-director Ryder Houston‘s Rapture in Blue follows a young man’s quest through flickering neon and hazy shadows to find his true self. After Jason (Bryce Lederer) tries to use his childhood home for a steamy rendezvous with his girlfriend, they discover it’s been newly occupied by the smoldering Sebastian (Tanner Garmon), who eagerly warms up to anxious Jason. Wracked with desires he’s long ignored while also being pressured by his girlfriend’s sensual advances, a growing sense of unease and dread permeates his life. After receiving an “impossible” photo of him embracing Sebastian, Jason realizes he needs to confront the madness consuming him from all sides.

 

Utopians
From provocative Hong Kong-based filmmaker Scud, Utopians follows Hins (Adonis He), a dreamy young student of literature and philosophy who finds himself in thrall of his charismatic teacher Antonio (Jackie Chow). Antonio soon drags Hins and his religious girlfriend Joey (Fiona Wang) into uncharted erotic territories. The intriguing appearance of Swan (Moe Chin), a beautiful intellectual woman, only adds to their entanglement of sensuality and lust. What once seemed like a path towards a surreal and unrestrained utopia is now barred by a lifetime secret and a lie of the heart. Will Hins lose himself amid the chaos of eroticism? Packed with nudity and graphic sex scenes, Utopians is a heady pansexual drama.

The Harvesters
In this stirring debut, Greek-African filmmaker Etienne Kallos explores repressed sexuality, religion and masculinity in the deep South African countryside. Two teenage boys start a dangerous fight for power, heritage and parental love that will change both of their lives forever. Religion and field work are the guiding principles of their conservative farming community, where strength and masculinity are valued above all else. In this repressive environment, young Janno (Brent Vermeulen) keeps his feelings to himself. One day his mother brings home Pieter (Alex van Dyk), a hardened street orphan she wants to save, and asks Janno to treat this stranger as his new brother. The trouble is: Pieter does not want to be saved.

 

Godless
After the death of their father, Nate (Craig Jordan) moves in with his mother, but his elder brother, Steven (Michael E. Pitts) continues his studies out of state. The brothers use this distance to end the incestuous physical affair they’ve shared since puberty. However, when their mother dies in a car accident, Steven returns for her funeral. During this time of mourning, the two brothers’ unrelenting love for each other threatens the secret they had buried. Nathaniel Grey for Frontiers Media said, “What carries this film is that through the chemistry and performances of Jordan and Pitts, you want to know more about them. You wonder how have they retained their sanity and composure over the years while holding strong to their forbidden but shared love.” He goes on to say, “…the film provides a great opportunity to experience a rarely offered and controversial topic.”

 

We Are Three
Nacho (Carlos Etchevers) is an accountant, a seemingly average guy. At a party he meets Ana (Flor Dragonetti), an attractive and self-confident, recently divorced young woman. As the pair are getting to know one another, they also meet an exceedingly charismatic bartender named Sebastian (Juan Manuel Martino), who starts flirting with both of them. Despite their doubts, Nacho and Ana accept Sebastian’s invitation to spend the night at his place. Initially, nothing happens (nothing sexual or overtly romantic, at least). A few days later, they decide to go on a weekend trip to a secluded farm. There, it seems like things will evolve – possibly leading to a a fun and fleeting one-night stand… until Sebastian confesses that he desires a long-term relationship with a man and a woman together. Featuring casual, committed, naturalistic performances, this unique indie film from Argentinian writer-director Marcelo Briem Stamm takes a sexy and provocative look at a modern three-person courtship.

 

The Lawyer
Life just drifts by for corporate lawyer Marius (Eimutis Kvosciauskas)… until he finds an unexpected connection with the dark and handsome Ali (Dogac Yildiz), an incredibly attractive young Syrian refugee who makes his living as a sex-cam worker. After Marius’s estranged father passes away, his infatuation intensifies. It isn’t long before he’s completely obsessed. He inevitably flies to Belgrade to meet Ali with in person, in hopes of a romantic week with his sexy Arab prince. Although, off-camera, things might not be exactly as they seemed. An intense romantic drama, The Lawyer is the newest film from prolific filmmaker Romas Zabarauskas, the same writer-director behind Porno Melodrama and You Can’t Escape Lithuania.
