Technological LGBTQ+ themes are probed in this cyber-collection of shorts. Featuring a DIY documentary about queer and trans bodies and online self-representation, trans people talking about how they have actively used videogames to explore their gender, a gay man programming his very own virtual world – a campy safe haven – in a dystopian future of surveillance and work, and a man discovering he has HIV and deciding to share the news via digital forums.

Marco Alessi, co-director of Look at Me, will be in attendance for a Q&A after the screening. If you require BSL interpretation for the Q&A, contact info@sqiff.org to make arrangements.

ACCESS: Level access at entrance of CCA with Cinema space on ground floor. Accessible toilets available. Various languages with English subtitles/captions. Hearing loop.
