Boy Meets Boy

International Feature Film Competition

Harry is visiting Berlin, but rather than sightseeing, he’s enjoying vibrant clubs and dancing. Johannes loves dancing, so he heads out from an empty studio apartment directly to a club. A chance encounter of two twenty-something men on the dance floor turns into an unexpected date full of honesty and tenderness, but also clashes in worldviews and opinions on relationships. A walk full of long talks with his charming companion changes Johannes' view on the German metropolis as well as life as such. As they wander through the city, they’re both forced to reconsider their own truths and contrasting values. Will they manage to connect their two worlds for the limited time they have together and ignore the differences dividing them? A mumblecore about a brief meeting which, despite the strict time limit, brings precious moments of joy not only to the protagonists themselves. The film was nominated for Outstanding First Feature at the Frameline Film Festival and for the Sunny Bunny Prize at the Molodist Kyiv Film Festival for Best LGBTQ Film. It ended up taking home the Special Jury Prize from Kyiv.
