T A P E x Invisible Women Present: Touched - Film Screening

Celebrate the diversity and fluidity of desire with Touched, an alternative Valentine’s Day screening showcasing sensuous shorts by female and non-binary filmmakers.

Co-curated by collectives T A P E and Invisible Women, this subversive and surprising programme connects filmmakers from across the decades, combining contemporary work with rarities from the archive.

Complemented by a Q&A, the result is a witty, intimate and unapologetically sexy selection of films which open up space for wider discussions about self-love, intimacy and longing. All short films and the Q&A are captioned.
