Late Night Short Films
5.00

Our cinephile shorts are provocative, irreverent and deeply insightful films that push against our comfort zones. Individually, they showcase powerful visuals and compelling stories that both make us say WTF and force us to reflect on our preconceived ideas about faith, gender, sexuality, and a host of other topics. Collectively they challenge us to engage with art on its own terms, and allow these films to share their vital, energetic, and often shocking perspectives.

Note: These films feature nudity and other adult content.

To be in a room with such a diverse group of people - and to hear personal stories of grief, faith, sexual identity, self-discovery, longing, love and what it means to be human - is to recognize that we are much more united than we realize.

The festival is a one of a kind experience... it’s the only place I have personally experienced positive, challenging, constructive and truthful conversation and a desire to hear and understand each other.
