Feminist crossroads of all sorts become visible in this selection of shorts—because the fight for an equal world is all but over.

Queer belonging as a migrant is at the centre of the visually stunning film-poem Lost Arab as well as the hommage to New York’s voguing scene Safe Space. The collective performance film New Test 123 revolves around queer intersectional stories while Eyes and Horns, an artfully animated piece, tells the story of a genderfluid mythological being. She’s The Protagonist, a humorous roadtrip, describes the injustices performers are facing and The Golden Age offers a historical insight into the early world of animation and its underestimated workers. Will You Remember My Name chooses the female body as a surface of projection for discrimination and a space of negotiation of patriarchy and The Soloists invites us into the humoristic world (of restraints) of three singing sisters.
