PrideArts has announced a four-week film festival of 32 short films from 13 countries that will begin on March 14.

The films will be shown over four separate programs of approximately ninety minutes per program, with each program streaming for one week. The first week of the festival will present 10 musical films from the US, Germany, Australia, Spain, and Botswana. They range from a music video of an original love song inspired by marriage activist Edie Windsor, through films that tell their stories through dance, others through song, a documentary about dancers, and some short but complete musicals. Themes of the second week’s films explore relationships at opposite ends of the age spectrum - from young love to a couple dealing with the onset of Alzheimer’s Disease. Some of the third week’s films explore prejudice and discrimination against people with queer identities. One film considers the challenges of sexual relations during the quarantine. Featured in the fourth and closing week of the festival are films concerned with identity and self-image as a queer person, challenges of romantic relationships, and a shocking film about a hate crime.
