This year, 43 queer shorts films from all over the world have done just this and found their way into the XPOSED program. 43 shorts that explore and celebrate queerness in filmmaking, finding a way of storytelling that challenges not only heteronormativity but also conventional cinema. Queer film icon Mara Mattuschka opens XPOSED by personally presenting her newest work PHAIDROS and will be our guest of honor at the Artist in Discussion session in Aquarium.
YESS! Another good reason to look forward to the TEDDY 2018 edition.
Three TEDDY AWARD 2017 films are nominated for the Oscars: “Call Me By Your Name“ by Luca Guadagnino for Best Actor, Best Picture, Best Screenplay and Best Original Song, “Strong Island“ by Yance Ford for Best Documentary Feature as well as last year’s TEDDY AWARD winner Una mujer fantástica by Sebastián Lelio for Best Foreign Language Film.
Congrats and fingers crossed!
