Over the past few weeks, we kickstarted a mini-series on our platform with the tag #AloneTogether to help us get through this unusual alteration of our normal lives. Today’s segment is dedicated to our lovely LGBTQ community.
Our team has gone through the web and selected 5 LGBTQ themed short-films to keep you occupied during your less productive hours. Enjoy our list below.
Automate is an LGBT lesbian / Bisexual love story sci-fi short film set 10-20 years in the future. It has a black mirror meets Before Sunrise type vibe. The story happens in the near future, two young women, Sam (Katie Stuart from The 100 / Inconceivable LGBTQ web series) & Riley (Alex Duncan from I Love You So Much It’s Killing Them), meet on a dating app that promises to find your perfect match. Confronted by their differences, they challenge each other on what gives their life purpose and their respective futures. Automate is a film about online dating, connection, and what relationships mean in the 21st century.
