Getting the lesbian series right has been an occasionally disappointing endeavour, but web-series 195 Lewis is definitely the hottest kid on the block. Centring on a group of queer women and non-binary people of colour in Brooklyn’s creative scene, 195 Lewis sees charming, relatable characters explore the working world, love, polyamory, friendship and identity, against a sexy, modern soundtrack of Brooklyn’s own queer music scene.

From the creators of Revival: Women and the Word and An Oversimplification of Her Beauty, 195 Lewis engages with and reflects our London scenes with its hilariously self-referential art talk, playful explorations of gender and sex, and a genius, blink-and-you’ll-miss-it Bette Porter reference.

You’ll be dying to know what happens next in your new favourite show.

Screens with

We Love Moses / dir. Dionne Edwards / UK 2016 / 15’
When Ella was twelve, she had her first fight. And when she was twelve, she discovered sex. Now eighteen, Ella reflects on how her obsession with her older brother Michael's best friend Moses left her with a secret she still carries.

Amelia and Charley / dir. Isiah Miller / United States 2017 / 16’
Amelia and Charley, two young women of color in the early stages of their relationship, must go up against a man who wants to exploit Charley's telekinetic abilities.

Followed by panel discussion, Representing Ourselves
People of colour and QTPOC have historically been under-represented on screen, fact. This panel asks a panel of queer people of colour working in film what inspired them to get into filmmaking, what positive representation looks like, as well as how queer people of colour in London are taking up space behind and in front of the lens in exciting new ways.

Chaired by Tara Brown (Wotever Film Festival) with panelists Dionne Edwards (filmmaker), Harley Yeung Kurylowski (filmmaker & curator kuntinuum) and Amrou Al-Kadhi (filmmaker & performer).
