LGBTQIA+ Film Event "One Fluid Night":

Celebrating Queer Representation in Film

London is gearing up to host an extraordinary event that will captivate audiences with its curated selection of queer short films. "One Fluid Night" is an immersive cinematic experience that celebrates the diverse and fluid nature of gender and sexuality. This groundbreaking event aims to provide a platform for underrepresented voices in the film industry while celebrating the queer experience.

The carefully chosen films showcased during "One Fluid Night" cover a wide range of themes, exploring topics such as coming out, self-discovery, love, relationships, and the unique challenges faced by the LGBTQIA+ community. Each film has been selected for its artistic merit, storytelling, and ability to shed light on various aspects of the queer experience.

An exciting aspect of the event is the active participation of the audience. After the screenings, attendees will have the opportunity to vote for their favourite film. The film with the most votes will receive a special prize, acknowledging the hard work and creativity of the filmmaker.

Held at a vibrant and energetic cinema in London, "One Fluid Night" provides an intimate and inclusive space for the audience to immerse themselves in these powerful stories. The event welcomes people of all gender identities and sexual orientations, creating a safe environment for self-expression and the celebration of the diverse queer community.

The event will be hosted by a charismatic Debbie Del Rey, ensuring a seamless flow throughout the night. Live performers, industry professionals, and the talented Misscondukt will provide entertainment and musical interludes, enhancing the overall experience.

The screening and Awarding Ceremony will be held at Genes Cinema (London, UK) on 20 October 2023.

    One Fluid Night was such a special festival. I wasn't able to attend the festival in person so I sent a representative, and everyone at OFN made sure that he felt welcomed and taken care of. They allowed him to read a statement on my behalf. He couldn't stop raving about how wonderful the evening turned out. The folks at OFN are incredible with their communication and they make sure that your film plays as you intended, and they go the extra mile in making sure that every film is marketed within the festival and online. I would highly recommend everyone submitting to One Fluid Night, as I will certainly do it again in the future.
