  1. Close Encounters | BOY SHORTS!

    90 mins
    Sometimes it’s hard to keep feelings from old relationships in the past, but new love is often right around the corner. These shorts tell stories of chance encounters, young love, heartbreak, loss, and everything in between. In GUIDANCE, directed by local filmmaker Josh Wolff, a high school psychologist struggles to keep his personal and professional lives separate and intact; WALK WITH ME stars Evan Todd (4TH MAN OUT) on an impromptu date walking around the city streets with a perfect stranger; and in SIGN, vignettes, music, and sign language help us delve into the romance of Ben, who is hearing, and Aaron, who is deaf.

    In This Program: Alfa, Alzheimer’s: A Love Story, Guidance, Sign, True Colours, Ultra Bleu, Walk With Me
