Fuck The Boxes - 10m
Directed by Abel Rubinstein

Fuck The Boxes is about a gay teen Dan who falls in love with a non-binary female friend Ray, dealing with his first ever vagina! We want to portray non-binary people in a realistic way whilst challenging the labels of many sexualities. Gender is becoming more fluid, does this mean our sexuality will too? It certainly does for our protagonist Dan. Our relatable comedic drama aims to entertain, sometimes outrageously, whilst tackling these issues.

Positions - 12m
Directed by Justin Ducharme

A simple and naturalistic approach to a day in the life of an indigiqueer, male sex worker as he visits his clients. Positions is an unapologetic and realist exploration of sexual desire, the quest for financial stability, and the pursuit of agency over one’s own body.

The lines between reality and fantasy become blurred, when a woman who has feelings for her best friend imagines what their relationship could be if she acted on them.
