Loved App

A lonely man searches for love through a dating app, as the chance of a physical connection becomes increasingly difficult.

Loved App is an award winning, satirical romance that explores the idea of projecting false personas of ourselves in order to feel accepted in an image-obsessed society.

"A warm and genuine film that took on the contemporary angst of online dating and alienation. We thought it was a very well-told story and all the elements were strong and contributed to a memorable film."
Carol Morley and Cairo Cannon - Director and Producer of ; "The Falling", "Dreams of a Life" and "The Alcohol Years".
