Pineapple is a 15-minute quirky queer musical rom-com directed by Sophie Saville.

The director’s comical love life inspires the film, but at its core, it’s about growing up and making better, healthier choices for yourself in relationships.

Pineapple was the winner of the Melbourne Queer Film Festival ‘Pitch, Pleez!’ competition, where Saville won $10,000 cash funding to complete the film.

The film follows the story of a newly single Sarah who moves into her first solo apartment, only to discover her new next-door neighbour, Peach, her aloof old flame.

Seeing this as a sign, the now older and more confident Sarah impulsively invites Peach to her housewarming dinner. The film explores the question: Is the one who got away worth the wait?

Overall, Pineapple is a charming exploration of personal growth and relationships, with a unique blend of comedy, musical elements, and romance. It’s a testament to Saville’s talent and a significant contribution to queer cinema.
