These seven shorts represent the diversity of our program and give you a glimpse of what to expect at Queer Shorts Vienna: from a dreamlike queer opera, to animated fairy-like characters fighting gender binary, episodes from a sauna that acts as a place to be free from bodie norms, to rage as a political force, a performative release from a toxic relationship, a glimpse into the colorful and loud world of drag wrestling, to a cab ride full of possibilities for two lovers. Celebrate the grand opening of Queer Shorts Vienna 2023 with us!
