Take Your Partners (2015)

Watch on BBC iPlayer.

Nominated in 2016 for: Best Short Film, BAFTA Scotland Awards; Crystal Bear, Berlin International Film Festival; Best British Short Film, Iris Prize; Best Female Performance, BAFTA Scotland New Talent Awards – Lily Graham.

A non-conforming 8-year-old challenges gender expectations when forced to make an Easter Bonnet with the girls. Bravely subverting convention, she also learns that the grown-up world is not quite so black and white.

Take Your Partners was made possible with the help and support of our Indiegogo contributors, all 180 of them. Not to mention the scores of kids, parents and guardians, as well as everyone at LGBT Youth Scotland and Into Film.

Starring Lily Graham, Luke Fairholm, Daisy Littlefield, Mori Christian, George Anton, Gabriella Schmidt, Anna Martine, Reanne Farley, Julie Duncanson, Mark McKirdy, Graham Mcinnes & Sally Magnusson.
