Content notes and trigger warnings can help to make an informed decision on whether to view a particular film or be mentally prepared for disturbing and difficult content. Our films often discuss and portray the beautiful but also harsh moments of queer realities in a racist, cis-heteronormative, sexist, ableist, classist and otherwise discriminatory society.

Psychological triggers work differently for every one of us. We cannot provide a comprehensive list of triggers, but if you have a specific question about a film or short film program, please email
