Alone Out Here In a moment of catastrophic climate change, Jon Wright, a gay farmer, is faced with a dilemma. His 22-year commitment to transform the genetics of his herd are pitted against the attitudes of the beef industry, who hold the future of his families 4th generation farm in their hands. Through his incredible journey of loss and survival, we learn what it takes to be true to yourself, at any cost. The Rainbow Passage The Rainbow Passage is the love story of Cadance and Amanda. Following a year in their gender transition, this intimate documentary charts not only their personal transformation but the building of a life and community together in regional New South Wales. Belonging Belonging follows 18- year-old LGBTIQ+ activist Sam Watson as he takes a road trip from Hobart to north-west Tasmania to examine the impact and influence of gay rights activist Rodney Croome’s public fight for gay law reform, which began in the 1980s and continues today.
