Synopsis

When a fresh-faced lesbian starts to explore dating and the LGBT community, it quickly becomes clear the story doesn't end once you come out. Plagued by disturbing visions of Dysphoria and Euphoria, she starts to question her identity and place in the community once again.

The Team

Writer Director: Jack Goessens

Producer: Reece Cargan 

In 2018 Jack and Reece met when Jack won (against Reece) at the Glasgow Short Film Festival Production Attic pitch with his film, Bouba & Kiki (2019), which premiered in the BAFTA qualifying competition at the festival the following year. 

Jack and Reece kept in touch and worked together as director and producer on short film Everyman (2021) commissioned through the Scottish Documentary Institute’s Bridging the Gap programme. It won Best short film at SQIFF, as well as being shortlisted for a Grierson Award and screening at multiple BAFTA and Oscar qualifying festivals.

​​

They've just finished another short film titled 'Who I Am Now', funded by Creative Scotland and LEAP. The script has been written by Bombito collaborator and BAFTA winning writer Michael Lee Richardson. 

Jack  has been selected for the BFI Flare x BAFTA Crew 2021 mentorship programme and is being mentored by Oscar winning producer Iain Canning.
