(Glasgow, Scotland) – November 21, 2022. The autobiographical short film “TOO ROUGH” written and directed by 24-year-old Sean Lìonadh has won the Scottish BAFTA Award for Best Live Action Short Film and received a nomination for the British Independent Film Awards (BIFA).
The 16-minute LGBTQ+ short also won two top awards at the Oscar®-qualifying festivals: the Best Queer Short Film Award at the Provincetown International Film Festival and the Best Live Action Short Award et Interfilm Berlin. In addition, TOO ROUGH has been acquired by Canal+ after garnering a multitude of accolades in the festival circuit.
Lìonadh wrote TOO ROUGH’s story based on his own experience growing up in a dysfunctional working-class family in Glasgow. He is previously known for his controversial visual poem “TIME FOR LOVE” which reached millions of people online, speaking to the experiences of the global LGBTQ+ community, while sparking a campaign by the Catholic church against the film.
TOO ROUGH tells the story of Nick, a young man from an impoverished family who are unaware that he is gay. After a night of partying, Nick is trapped in his cramped bedroom where he must hide his lover Charlie from his dysfunctional family.
