BOYS ON FILM debuted as a six volume short film series on VHS back in the early 90’s and was resurrected by Peccadillo in 2009. Over the years BOYS ON FILM has presented a stunning collection of outstanding, award winning short films from all over the world, including two Oscar winners.

So! There’s no time to waste, get your camera out and show us what you’ve got.


GIRLS ON FILM my be Boys On Film’s little sister, but she is growing quickly and already has a lot to show off. GIRLS ON FILM 1: FIRST DATE was released in 2014 and since then we have set ourselves the challenge to bring the best of lesbian and feminist short films to the world. Diversity is our key word, also in geographical terms. Therefore, the past three editions of Girls On Film have gathered the stories of brave, audacious and strong women from all around the world. India, Senegal, Poland, Algeria, Norway, Argentina are just some of the countries of origin of these stories, but of course, we naturally welcome home-grown talent from Blighty!
