The event will include a bouquet of some award-winning and highly appreciated LGBT+ short films from South Asia and South-Asian filmmakers followed by members of South Asian LGBTQ+ community taking a look at representation and inclusivity in South-Asian cinema.

List of movies being showcased:

(U Ushacha) | Eng: U for Usha

U for Ushacha - Marathi film

Directed by Rohan Parashuram Kanawade.

U Ushacha is a sensitive portrayal of the awakening of desire between two women — an illiterate, poor laborer Usha (Kiran Khoje) and the primary school teacher (Arpita Ghogardare) at the village school.

The film recently won the Satyajit Ray Short film award at the London Indian Film Festival.

Miss Man

Directed by Tathagata Ghosh.

After being shunned by his homophobic father for his sexuality and his lover for not being a woman, Manob finds himself traveling to the city for a sex change operation. However, as he struggles with his identity, he faces challenges and questions he may not be ready to confront yet.


Long Distance

Directed by Anoop Lokkur.

Long Distance talks about the story that happens when a young Indian woman living in Australia, gets a call from her Mum back home while getting ready for work. As they talk, the little white lies Aayushi tells indicate a distance between herself and her family that is more than just physical.
