all fruits ripe

independent series for queer filmmakers


all fruits ripe is an independent, nomadic series for LGBTQIA+ filmmakers of Global Majority backgrounds. We specialise in film programming and screenings; showcasing a range of productions across genres and styles. As part of our practice, we provide workshops, creative consultancy, and spaces for knowledge exchange between industry leads, hobbyists, and enthusiasts alike.

Since our first screening in 2019, we strived to champion directors, screenwriters, and producers that have been historically marginalised within the practice. We work with artists to develop stories, network horizontally and push for equitable, communal, civic space. Our mission is to bring radical imagination and acts of care into cinema, film, and moving image practice through diverse practitioners, narratives, and audiences.

all fruits ripe believes in the power of the collective, the potency of love, and moving ideas forward frame by frame.
