FilmDoo is teaming up with New Queer Visions to release a collection of shorts from the festival.
Titled “Lust in Translation”, the collection comprises seven new short films from seven female directors from around the world. The shorts explore first loves, regrets, happy endings and revenge. The feature-length compilation is the first release from the festival and also marks new territory for FilmDoo, a pay-per-view VOD service that has established itself as a go-to site for hard-to-find and previously unreleased global cinema.
The anthology of shorts will be available to stream from Monday 1st August globally, with a price of £3.49 in the UK.
