A Queer Art Film Series

LGBT art and film meet in the back garden of Superfine! The Fair at the heart of Midtown Miami this December.

Join 250+ art-lovers and cinephiles in the back garden of Superfine! The Fair for a 60 minute series of short films poised directly at the intersection of LGBT themes and the contemporary art world. Curated and presented by South Florida's own OUTshine Film Festival (formerly MiFo), you'll enjoy a welcome addition to Miami Art Week's generally LGBT-lacking schedule. With a constant commitment to spotlighting LGBT artists, Superfine! brings a new dimension to our Miami fair through this partnership.

ART.FILM | MOVER + SHAKER Q+A

Between the two film programs, attendees will enjoy a brief Q+A with Superfine! - The Fair director Alex Mitow, OUTshine Film Festival director Victor Gimenez, and Chris Adamo of The New Tropic. Led by Lauren Fairbanks of S+G, the panel will elucidate the merging of film and art, and how each influences the other.

The Films

Taste of Love

Directed By: Paul Scheufler
Austria, 4:32 mins

"What is the taste of love?" Could it be sweet, sour, bitter or even salty? A girl embarks on an aromatic journey of love, stimulating her taste buds to the point of climax. With all senses, she explores the various forms love can take on. “Love is as diverse as our sense of taste.” 

Tailor

Directed By: Calí dos Anjos
Brazil, 9:47 mins

About a transgendered cartoonist and the stories of the people designed by him.

 

NAUGHTY AMELIA JANE

Director: Risheeta Agrawal
India/Czech Republic, 11:37 mins

This film is a satire on the hilarious hypocrisy of society towards anything that goes against the "conventional social order of things”, told through a story of two girls who may or may not have had a connection. This is a story about speculation.

Sisak

Directed by: Faraz Ansari
India, 15:28 mins

A first-of-its-kind silent LGBTQ film in India, Sisak makes waves before the visuals of this short hit the shore. Set in the fast-paced environs of the usually bustling Mumbai local train system, it details a romance that develops slowly and intoxicatingly, nestled in the silences and quiet comforts of the end-of-day train journeys.

 

The Night Cleaner

Directed By: Blair Fukumura
Canada, 5:30 mins

As the night cleaner in Canada's busiest gay bathhouse, Travis has his work cut out for him. With good humour he takes us on an amusing and sometimes harrowing tour through his nightly duties.
