GAZE – Making History is the GAZE account of the historic same-sex marriage referendum victory. Céad Ghrá is a nostalgic coming-of-age story about two best friends in thrall to that powerful first crush. In No Strings, Bryn, a jaded young man new to London, must spend the night with Sean, after their casual sexual encounter leaves Sean stranded. Meet Luke – he tries to avoid labels at all costs, as gender is not as simple or binary as we have been taught. Inspired by the work of Eadweard Muybridge, Turning is a dance film exploring the cyclical nature and repetitive behavior of contemporary society. Our Gemma explores questions of identity and how the comedian Gemma Hutton responds to bigotry and sectarianism in Northern Ireland.
