Film phase:Completed

Chicken & Egg Pictures and Multitude Films are proud to announce QUEER FUTURES, a series of four documentary shorts directed by emerging LGBTQ directors. The short films in the QUEER FUTURES series showcase queer and trans, BIPOC, disabled, working-class, and underrepresented experiences as a point of pride and power. Film topics explore gender affirming healthcare, fat beauty and liberation, nonbinary ballroom culture, and the anonymous connections of a decades-old LGBTQ hotline.

“QUEER FUTURES offers audiences a road map to justice and joy rooted in the historically underrepresented perspectives it features. Just as queer lives subvert normative expectations, these shorts present new ways of seeing the queer experience lived out loud and expand the boundaries of nonfiction. Multitude Films looks forward to presenting the industry with a new generation of LGBTQ storytellers to watch with this project.”

– Multitude Films Founder Jessica Devaney. 

As a partner in the production of the series, Chicken & Egg Pictures provided a $75,000 grant—the largest single grant disbursed by the organization to date. The program brought the filmmakers together for an in-person story lab facilitated by Chicken & Egg Pictures team members.
