Revealed today the shorts competitions films

The shorts competitions films for Queer Lisboa 26 were revealed today.


This year’s selection of shorts for the Official Short Film Competition covers a wide range of the queer spectrum. And, again, a will to highlight films that expand the discourse of what is, should or could be queer, thanks to radical deviances, daring metaphorical subterfuges; to the use, in brief, of a cinematographic language that is as much a political tool as a weapon of aesthetic experimentation.


And the “In My Shorts” European School Short Film Competition brings together a set of works that reveal the political and aesthetic concerns of a young generation of filmmakers. The transition between childhood and adolescence, the dissolution of age barriers or the celebration of identity and chosen families, are some of the proposals that dominate this selection, materialized through different formats: from documentary to fiction, passing through experimental and performative.
