SHORTS: SO LET’S MAKE THINGS PHYSICAL

These female-centric stories focus on the longing, heartache, and lust that so often entangle themselves when it comes to intimacy. From throuples to flirty friendships to the politics of casual f*ckbuddies, navigating queer female relationships can be tricky. What happens when you’re attracted to someone impossibly not your type, or when a roommate situation blooms into romance? The characters in these shorts don’t have all the answers, but they’re willing to put their hearts, and occasionally their bodies, on the line.

All-Girl Friday After-Party, Teddy’s @ Roosevelt Hotel, 8pm – 1am
