New trailer for Boys On Film 23: Dangerous To Know, queer short film collection

Ahead of the worldwide release of Boys On Film 23: Dangerous To Know, gay short film collection released on 24 July, Peccadillo Pictures has unveiled the new trailer.

A perfect stranger. The boy next door. A sparring partner. A friend from abroad. Boys on Film present its 23rd gay short film collection with ten encounters from across the globe, where the tempting allure of a risky attraction yields emotional results, proving that the age-old adage of taking the plunge is as relevant — and sexy — as ever before. 

Whether you’re traveling from the US to Brazil, or crossing Europe through UK to Hungary, Belgium, Norway, Georgia and Israel, there’s such a diversity of men to meet who are passionate to love, but dangerous to know.
