More about the the films:

Powers - Directed and Written by Paige Morrow Kimball (24 mins)

A budding artist in her 60s hangs joyful sculptures on telephone poles in her urban community. Afraid to get caught, she disguises herself as a man and through her random acts of kindness, she comes into her own, and makes peace with her troubled past. This heart-warming story reminds us that it’s never too late to discover one's true passion.

Out - Directed and Written by Steven Clay Hunter (10 mins)

This heartwarming Disney Pixar short  follows a queer man as he tries to work up the courage to open up to his parents when they come to visit. The film, the studio’s first with an openly gay main character, was created by writer and director Steven Clay Hunter and producer Max Sachar. 

The Year We Thought About Love - Directed by Ellen Brodsky (68 mins)

The Year We Thought About Love goes behind the scenes of the oldest queer youth theater in America. In a twist on the common image of LGBTQ youth as victims, the film reveals the troupe members as artists and activists, celebrating the fullness of their lives. The camera crew slips into rehearsal rooms, kitchens, classrooms, and subways capturing the wit, candor, and attitude of these young people as they work to create outreach through skits and performances while navigating the reality of their own lives. When the Boston Marathon bombs explode outside their building, the troupe becomes even more determined to share their stories of love to help heal their city.
