Platinum Shorts Showcase


Desire, danger, obsession, loneliness, love lost, found, and twisted are all part of the tales told in this year’s showcase. Queer mayhem ensues across Los Angeles as Mykki Blanco and Ssion team up in No Leash, while secrets of gay farmers across the U.K. spring to life in Landline. Explore hot casual encounters of the digital age in Tristan Scott’s Only Trumpets, and watch a brutally sexy dance unfold between two young lads in Crashing Waves. Try not to cover your eyes as religion, horror, and desire collide in The Sermon, and get a thrill from Jacquie Ray’s lusty ladies giving Tea Bag a whole new meaning.
