The Queer Italia Network has the pleasure of presenting an evening of contemporary LGBTQ Italian short films. This night is a way for audiences to discover and enjoy films that break the boundaries of Italian mainstream LGBTQIA+ representation. Made by individuals or groups working outside the major media industry, these films offer a small glimpse into the ways that Italian and Italian speaking LGBTQIA+ people represent themselves and their experiences.
