Thomas Edison Film Festival presents a special curation of short films: 5:00 – 6:00. A screening of queer cinema from the TEFF collection, featuring a Q&A with filmmaker David De la Fuente and festival director Jane Steuerwald.
David De la Fuente is an animation artist with interests in the moving image, aesthetic theory, semiotics, and graphic design. His work has explored themes of loss, queerness, and romanticism. His films have been shown at festivals and screenings around the world. Currently, David is based in New York where he continues to play with the relationship between the digital image and its consumer.
Made over the course of two years, his film “Compositions for Understanding Relationships” is an animated short that takes the shape of a “love letter.” This concept is examined as various forms of relationships are brought on throughout the film. Taken in out and out of the romantic context, the viewer gazes upon the dynamic play of the variables of composition such as color, form, balance, proportion, and unity. Bleeding images of the human form elicits the emotions of love.

1-1 – Narrative – 7 min. by Naures Sager, Malmö, Sweden. Ayman’s sex date with Jonas gets crashed by his friends Amirah and Samir. This comedy short takes a hilarious and positive turn as it breaks stereotypes and celebrates diversity.
