The Curta Woofs show, promoted by the app SCRUFF, offers eight free Brazilian productions with thematic LGBT+ between days March 5th and 25th. Curated by André Fischer, founder of the MixBrasil Festival and responsible for the Diversity Cultural Center, the themes explored in the works mix sexuality, aesthetic languages and groups. Each of the shorts films was produced in different states of Brazil and presents different aspects of the daily life of Brazilian gay men.

“The films offer a very diverse panel: from the peripheral scene of São Paulo to the underground Recife, a hustler-client relationship, a son who discovers that his father has a boyfriend, a crush in the boredom of the pandemic, a sensual trip in a off-line dystopia, dating by apps and fetishes.In common among all, good humor and sexy content”, says Fischer.

The films, which can be accessed for free through the “Events” tab in the SCRUFFapp, were shown and awarded at some of the main LGBTQ film festivals in Brazil and foreign and have the participation of well known actors as Julio Oliveira (Desconexo), Erom Cordeiro (Alano), Lucas Drummond (Depois Daquela Noite) and Fabricio Licursi (O Presente).

SCRUFFis available on the App Store and Google Play.
