  • What a great experience. The LGBTQ+ LA Film Festival gave me an opportunity to get my first ever film LENNON out there. They were all so king, supportive and answered all questions I had. The support and encouragement was amazing!

  • I was honored to have my film EXPECTING included in this fantastic festival. Not only did it win Best Direction, but our team was honored with the opportunity to receive Audience Feedback (which was very moving and inspiring), as well as a podcast interview and written interview. Thanks for all you do!
