Specially selected from the main BFI Flare programme, the 5 short films in the #GenerationNow collection explore what it means to be a young queer adult in the world today – from an English school to an apocalyptic Greece to an American apartment.
Issues of friendship, confession, relationship dynamics and belonging are explored in this programme of films that shine a light on the pressures facing young queer people today: how can they find one another and communicate how they feel? This collection showcases some of the brightest emerging queer filmmakers from across the world.
