The GAZE on Tour 2018 Irish LGBT shorts programme reaffirms the quality of LGBT film and filmmaking talent within Ireland, as well as the standard of work being produced internationally by Irish creators. The sheer scope in the exploration in themes, concepts and artistic approaches is proof that queer Irish film has come of age.

This programme, curated for GAZE festival 2018 reflects the diverse spectrum of voices, the wide-eyed fantasies and the distinct experiences of the Irish LGBT community. GAZE is committed to promoting these voices outside of the festival, and is proud to include the programme in its GAZE on Tour season.
