STALLS – AWARD WINNING GAY SHORT FILM – 50 LGBTQ+ Festivals – OUTFEST 2020 –



Stalls is an exciting depiction of one man’s cruising adventure in the restroom of an opera house. In the film, Jonathan goes to the restroom, opens its golden glory hole and waits for someone to answer. Finally, after tapping his feet in what looks like a tap-dancing sequence he is able to find another man willing to give him what he wants.

Filmed in 35mm! IT’S ADVENTUROUS! IT’S FUNNY! IT’S CINEMATIC!

STALLS has been part of the official selection of more than 45 LGBTQ+ Festivals worldwide including Outfest 2020, Gaze Film Festival, Oslo Fusion, Rozefilmdagen, Wicked Queer, and many more!
