Show Me Shorts: Queer Short Film Night

Show Me Shorts invites you to a Queer Short Film Night showcasing filmmakers and stories from the LGBTQI+ community in New Zealand. Six short films have been selected from our archive that touch on confessions, confusions, dramatisations, drag and… rugby. Join us in a cosy bar to enjoy these stories and connect with others.

  • Her Beneath Her is a documentary that explores the experiences of three ‘hyper queens’ and the challenges they face finding acceptance in the male-dominated drag industry.
  • The Grind invites us into the covert world of Grindr. New Zealand gay men reveal stories about their encounters of all kinds in this frank documentary.
  • Tits on a Bull follows star player Phoenix as she struggles to choose between her longtime friendship with ageing rugby coach Rusty, and the new relationship blossoming with her team captain Melanie.
  • Zinzan is a drama about a rugby-mad father who fears his son might not be recruited into the national Under 20’s team when he insists on bringing his boyfriend to practice.
  • Sybil’s Psychic Hotline is a dark comedy about Con who decides that the perfect way to cheer up her depressed and bedridden partner Bella is to call a clairvoyant phone line.
  • Repugnant introduces Grace who wants to prove that her pray-away-the-gay dog therapy works by trying to ‘cure’ Fergis the pug of his homosexuality.
