Queer Vision 2022

108 mins

For this Pride Month, Encounters will be celebrating the moments of joy that members of the LGBTQI+ community are often denied on and off screen.

The films in this programme make no room for drama - unless it comes with glitter - and envision a world in which people can freely explore the wider range of their own identities.
