MIX could not have flourished for 35 years without our community and networks. In recognition of this, we’ve created a short film program in collaboration with select LGBTQ+ film festivals. Our goal is to highlight the importance of queer festivals and support their work. We chose the theme ‘Riot’ for this selection of shorts and let the festivals organisers interpret it in their own way.
