Rural Arts presents the LGBTQIA+ Short Film Season, celebrating diverse voices in cinema!

Rural Arts are pleased to invite filmmakers from the LGBTQIA+ community to submit short films to our Short Film Season. The season is dedicated to amplifying stories, experiences, and perspectives of the community through the art of short filmmaking.
