Curated by Peccadillo Pictures for Out on Tuesday and including a guest introduction from Asten Holmes-Elliott.

16-year-old Claudia has grown up in isolation from the outside world. Stranded on a remote property after her mother's death, she is shocked when Grace, a spirited local teen, appears in the garden like a mirage, a breath of fresh, sugary air. The pair find in each other the support, love and intimacy they need, and teach each other the restorative power of human connection.

But their idyllic peace is a fragile one as the adult world closes in and threatens their secret summer love. Headlining some of Australia's brightest young talent, Markella Kavenaugh (Romper Stomper) and Adelaide's Maiah Stewardson (Windmill, STC, Patch), My First Summer takes girls seriously and sensitively.
