Tag! Queer Shorts Festival 2022 (Streaming)

TAG! Queer Shorts Festival is your Portland, Oregon-based international festival of short film, featuring work made exclusively by queer and trans directors. This festival has prioritized a communal approach in how cinematic content can be experienced and celebrated. From documentaries to music videos; from narrative to experimental; from movement to poetry; come explore six thematic blocks showcasing films from twenty countries.

This year’s festival is virtual and will stream from February 21 at 6:00pm to March 6 at 11:59pm. A new shorts block will be available each day at 6:00pm from February 21-26. Be sure to allow enough time to finish watching before the stream ends for good on March 6 at 11:59pm.

To turn on captions or subtitles while viewing a video, click the CC button in the player's bottom toolbar. In the menu that appears, select the caption or subtitle track you'd like to see.
