Rhiw Goch.
When Mike Parker and his partner Peredur were chosen to be heirs of a beautiful farmhouse owned by their good friends George & Reg, Mike knew their friendship was special.

My God, I'm Queer.
Can you be Muslim and gay? A bereaved fiancé goes on a deeply personal journey to prevent the tragedy from ever happening again. In 2014, Matt's fiancé and soulmate of 13 years, Naz, took his own life two days after being confronted about being gay by his Muslim family. In this film Matt goes on a journey to try and understand the challenges of what it's like to be queer and Muslim... in the hope of preventing another young LGBTQ+ person taking their own life.
Queering di Teknolojik.
QUEERING DI TEKNOLOJIK is a message from the future. Spoken by the collective digital voice of a group of queer artists and activists, this collaborative project speculates about the possibilities of a temporality yet to come. What does the future look, sound and feel like? Did we manage to dismantle the white supremacist capitalist patriarchy and avert the impending environmental catastrophe? Which strategies of protest and resistance were the most effective? This is a message of hope.
Dungarees.
What even is a male? Why can't I wear a dress? Fuck it. Let's have sex and worry about it later. Transgender Blake and cisgender Cane hang out, play video games and grapple with their insecurities. This is their love story.

As Jaz and Charlie make a final attempt to keep their relationship alive, one of them comes out as non-binary, sparking a conversation that will change them both forever.
