Monday 17 September 2018 -
20:00 to 22:00

In partnership with Accept Association, on 17 September, from 20:00, at DESCHIS Gastrobar (160 Splaiul Unirii, Bucharest), we invite you to open your hearts and minds with the Queer Shorts selection brought to us by BFI FLARE, one of the world’s longest running LGBT film events.

After the screening, we will discuss the Referendum for redefining the family in the Romanian Constitution and how we can respond to this attack on human rights.

The films explore and celebrate a range of LGBT experiences, but essentially, they are about finding out – and standing up for – who we are, at a time when our rights are being questioned.

The programme includes 9 short films from BFI FLARE:

  • We Love Moses (Dionne Edwards, 16’, 2016, UK)
  • I Am A Woman (Kai Fiáin & Azara Meghie, 4’, 2016, UK)
  • Crush (Rosie Westhoff, 8’, 2016, UK)
  • Strings (Richard Turley, 13’, 2014, UK)
  • Take Your Partners (Siri Rødnes, 14’, 2015, UK)
  • Balcony (Toby Fell-Holden, 17’, 2015, UK) – winner of the Crystal Bear at Berlinale
  • Jamie (Chirstopher Manning, 9’, 2016, UK)
  • Where We Are Now (Lucie Rachel, 9’, 2016, UK)
  • Chance (Jake Graf, 17’, 2015, UK)
