SeasonOutburst Queer Arts Festival

Sixteen-year-old Claudia has grown up in isolation from the outside world. Stranded on a remote property after her mother's death, she is shocked when Grace, a spirited local teen, appears in the garden like a mirage, a breath of fresh, colourful, sugary air.

The pair find in each other the support, love and intimacy they need, learning the restorative power of human connection. But their idyllic peace is a fragile one as the adult world closes in and threatens their secret summer love. 

Showcasing some of Australia's brightest young talent (Markella Kavenaugh and Maiah Stewardson are a revelation) My First Summer is a gorgeous debut from director Katie Found that takes teenage girls seriously and sensitively, offering the kind of queer beauty and tenderness that we all too rarely see on screen.
