Each year, Melbourne's Same Sex Formal is attended by young people from across the state who have missed out on the one rite-of-passage most teenagers take for granted - either because their school explicitly refused to let them bring a same-sex partner, or because they just didn't feel safe to do so. With breathtaking insight, honesty and humour, Erin, Steph and 10 other LGBT teens reveal the highs and lows of their experiences with falling in love, coming out at high school and coming of age.

This documentary explores the phenomenal rise of Australian street artists and the tensions between street credibility and gallery recognition. Cutback seeks to understand the 'key' to the street and graffiti addiction. The secretive world of street art and graffiti tensions becomes visible as we follow the meteoric rise of artist ELK Luke Cornish from garage artist to sell out solo show, and finally the euphoria of his first international London gallery exhibition in under three years. How long will he ride the success? With insightful commentary from graffiti and street artists, curators and collectors, the Australian street art and graffiti scene is revealed.
