No Homo, No Hetero: Sexual Fluidity and Manhood in Black America (Short Version)
H. Sharif "Herukhuti" Williams, United States, 2017, 10 minutes, English.
The complexities, challenges, and beauty of being Black, bisexual and male in the United States, as well as the politics of living and loving authentically at the intersection of racism, biphobia, and toxic masculinity are explored in this work in progress.

way home
Lynx Sainte-Marie, Canada, 2017, 7 minutes, English. An atmospheric visual and auditory landscape of poetry woven from love, pain and longing. The artist shares tender memories of play, grief, abandonment, and resilience as well as the various other dissonant emotions the concept of home can invoke for Black folks in the diaspora.

Sum (Heart)
Jaene Castrillon, Canada, 2017, 3 minutes,  English.  Based on ideas of Zen Buddhism and rooted in the 7 Grandfather teachings, Sum (Heart) is a rumination on death, grief and letting go. Starting out as a visual mourning song to Wendy Babcock, Mr Toqui Wong and Jack, empty landscapes represent the yearning for the company of dead friends.

City Witch
Clementine Morrigan, Canada, 2016, 2 minutes, English. A liminal space of magic, madness, trauma, survival, resilience, and relationship, City Witch is a love letter to life still living wherever it can.

Insomnia
Raishma Tigress, Canada, 2017, 4 minutes. No dialogue.  Sizzling experimental softcore set to a dubstep tune, in the lush backdrop of a Toronto park.

Misadventures of Pussy Boy: An Animated Trilogy
Alec Butler, Canada, 2000-2003, 20 minutes, English.  When 2spirit tweensy Alick falls for femme highschool siren K, they are a hot mess in a cold snowbank.

1974
Catherine Jones, Canada, 2017,  2 minutes, English.  Survival takes the form of an obsession with the neighbours horses and last years Christmas present of a model airplane kit.

ID#1: Writer  
Emilia Ondriaov√°, Slovakia, 2016, 4 minutes, Slovak with English subtitles.  A bisexual woman, a successful writer, moves from one city to another. She has experienced not only fame, but also the emptiness of air-conditioned rooms where the windows just never open.

#StillBisexual: Robert Lawrence
Robert Lawrence & Nicole Kristal, United States, 2015, 3 minutes, English.  Robert comes from a long lineage of bisexuals.  

Seeking: Mirror
Emma Hathaway, United States, 2017, 8 minutes, English. Sometimes its hard to shake off the feeling of being devalued and less than when bi-erasure and biphobia run rampant in popular culture.

Self and Others
Patricia Silva, United States, 2015, 6 minutes, no dialogue. A formal experiment with queer/bisexual visual language using clips from the Golden Age of Hollywood. A fascinating look at how bisexuals have written ourselves into queer discourses through ambiguity, hesitation and psychic tensions.
