This program is recommended for persons 14+ due to Mature Content. Reelout programmers faced well over 1000 submissions this year and this program features 11 of the finest short films from around the globe; a dizzying trek of eclectic stories that also run the gamut of emotions.

CONTENT WARNING: Reelout recognizes that during this pandemic, we are all suffering to some degree with our mental health and while this program deals with mature subjects and does end on a positive note, audiences should be prepared for a sobering yet unfortunately honest portrayal of a coming-out story in the very first film El Nido (The Nest). We will be offering audiences a chance to join our LIVE ZOOM CHAT after the program to talk about the films (or just listen). This is our virtual cafe/pub chat nothing academic, just comfy casual! AT 5:40PM EST CLICK THIS LINK AFTER THE SCREENING to be whisked off to our Zoom Chat.

One afternoon, after witnessing a homophobic attack at school, 12-year old Elías tells his parents that he is also gay. But his cry for help gets unanswered, which will make him wonder: how can I feel safe? where’s my nest?
