The Queer Short Film Fund

The Queer Short Film Fund – Public Pitch

The Queer Short Film Fund was set up to facilitate annual development and production of Queer Film Projects that originate from Germany. Submissions are accepted for documentary, narrative, animated or experimental projects that are queer in content and or form. Projects should ideally challenge and question normative perspectives and simultaneously broaden their vision to topics beyond traditional LGBTQIA+ representation of the mainstream niche market.

XPOSED assembles a selection committee that reviews every application and select the finalists. The finalists are then invited to a public pitching session on Saturday, May 28th at 12pm at aquarium where they will present their projects to the Lolly Awards Jury. The jury will deliberate and announce the winner at the annual Lolly Awards Ceremony, held during the evening of the last festival day. Everyone is invited to come and listen to the filmmakers present their projects, ask questions and be part of the first steps of film development!

We are excited to present the four finalists of the 8th Queer Short Film Fund, who will be pitching their projects at the Public Pitch:

1. ‘Anoche soñé que te morías’ by Tavo Ruiz
2. ‘Terror at the lake’ by Harvey Rabbit
3. ‘Uncanny home’ by Eric Bitencourt
4. ‘Ne Var Ki’ by Emine Demir
