A dark, campy, and downright bizarre short film program for the thrillseeker in you

Description

An Uber ride. A camping trip. A first date. These could be sites of terror for anyone, but, in these films, they are particularly scary for our queer protagonists. Showcasing a diverse assortment of styles, tones, and subject matter, SHORTS: QUEER FEAR is peak adrenaline fuel for the horror fan looking for something new (and very gay) to munch on — a truly terrifying and one-of-a-kind LGBTQ+ viewing experience!
