Yungblud has announced the digital premiere of his upcoming short film Mars, which was inspired by the British rocker’s 2020 song of the same name.
The 21-minute movie will screen via the streaming platform Moment on November 17. The premiere falls in the middle of Transgender Awareness Week, which takes place November 13-19.
The online event will also feature an introduction from Yungblud and Mars star Yasmin Finney as well as a panel hosted by LGBTQ+ organization GLAAD.
“I’m so honored to present you our beautiful film Mars,” Yungblud says. “I believe this is the start of something truly groundbreaking and truly special. This all came from the idea that we could facilitate bringing characters to life by assembling a team of cast and crew that fully represent the communities whose stories we wanted to tell.”
“We set out to bring talented creatives together, some experienced, some whose star was already rising and some who’d never been on a film set before,” he adds. “Giving people a platform to tell their stories with truth and integrity means so much to me and I feel that’s what we’ve achieved with this film.”
