While enjoying a day at Athens’ queer beach, 30-something Demosthenes offers to help his bestie and aspiring filmmaker Nikitas in drafting an idea for his feature debut, inspired by the events surrounding a certain dog named Carmen. Two summers ago, Demosthenes was stuck in Athens dealing with health issues of his father. This serves as an excuse to reach out to his ex, Panos. Meanwhile, Panos got the overly cute Carmen, something he soon regretted. Likewise, Demosthenes seems to have regretted breaking up with Panos. Or did he not? Struggling to transform real events into a hero’s journey, the two friends question the no.1 rule of script writing theory – the hero that changes – while turning a page in their long lasting friendship.
Pride Film Fest streams international queer films weekly in an innovative film fest format.
Pride Film Fest features films that have been recognized in festivals worldwide and have yet to be streaming on demand.
Our contest films are submitted through FilmFreeway, and submissions are taken throughout the year, as one of our goals is to get exciting new films in front of audiences quickly. If you are a filmmaker, please submit queer films of any length through FilmFreeway.
Pride Film Fest's membership is $10 per month, and members see all shorts and mid-length contest films for free and get discounted tickets for features.
Whether you are an artist or an audience member, we look forward to engaging with you as an artist or audience member.
