‘From A To Q’ is an 18-minute short film that tells about a story of friendship, coming out, and learning to love yourself. It stars Sophie Rivers and Holly Ashman as Alex and Kayla, respectively. The short film is about Alex facing her sexuality in a dream; where she must deal with the reality of it when she wakes.

In an interview with Emmalie El Fadli on Diva Magazine, the director was asked about her inspirations drawn from other queer films. She replied:

Film wise, I drew inspiration from “Love, Simon”, “Booksmart”, “Lady Bird” and “The Perks of Being a Wallflower”, but also from shows like “Atypical”, “Sex Education”, and “I Am Not OK With This”. They all deal with the characters’ inner conflicts with sexuality and finding their true sense of self, which is a very prominent theme in ‘From A To Q.’

The director also revealed the process of writing the short film towards the end of 2019 which was meant to go into production in April 2020. However, because of lockdown, the production had to be postponed, which gave the team more time to refine the script. ‘From A To Q’ was selected to be part of the official selections of the 2021 Frameline Film Festival, 2021 Iris Prize, 2021 BFI Flare London LGBTQIA+ Film Festival, and 2021 Inside Out Toronto LGBT Festival.

Official Synopsis: When Alex wakes suddenly from a dream in which she confesses her love to her best friend, her whole world is turned upside down. She uses the following weeks to understand herself and slowly comes to terms with who she may be, all while trying hard not to lose the best friend she’s had since she was five. After all, coming out isn’t easy.
