Queer/adjacent shorts of beauty/horror/joy
ABOUT THE PROGRAM:
Our final edition of the Extremely Online Project livestreams is FLAMING BEAUTY
Travel with us down festival wormholes, through the deepest recesses of the Dark Web, into bedrooms & hallways, cross country and onto the T4 Line (change for City Circle) with a series of shorts celebrating vivid loveliness in current queer/adjacent filmmaking.
Among other rarities we’re delighted to premiere a brand new never-seen video work created especially for this grand finale by the spectacular Demon Derriere
Pink Flamingo Cinema exists on the land of the Gadigal people of the Eora Nation, from whom sovereignty was never ceded.
