2022 SCREENING SCHEDULE

January 20

January Channel Screening

Shorts Track: We’ve curated five short films that share the universal theme of being an outsider – of not quite fitting in – whether it’s insecurities or shyness or maybe how society stigmatizes segments within our communities. The Filmmakers touch on the raw and fragile emotions around these issues of loss, fear, grief and losing the people you love – and maybe losing yourself along the way – as well as exploring the coping mechanisms we draw upon to carry on.  Q&A with Filmmakers.
