Watch Queering Di Teknolojik free on All 4

Spoken by the collective digital voice of a group of queer artists and activists, this collaborative project speculates about the possibilities of a temporality yet to come. This is a message from the future. A message of hope.

Mae’r prosiect cydweithredol hwn, sy’n cael ei fynegi gan lais digidol, cyfunol, grŵp o artistiaid ac actifyddion queer, yn dyfalu am y posibiliadau o eiddo tymhorol sydd eto i ddod. Neges o’r dyfodol yw hon. Neges o obaith.


Queering Di Teknolojik was nominated for Iris Prize Best British Short Supported by Film4 by Queer Vision, one of our UK wide network of partner festivals.
