  • As a Central California native (born and raised in Bakersfield, CA), I was very proud to have had my short film screen at the 2023 Reel Pride Film Festival. Great fest. Great people. A true celebration of LGBTQ+ cinema.

    A small festival, but a really good one. Fun place to share our queer animated short.

    We really enjoyed our time at Reel Pride. We were warmly welcomed by the team and were able to meet many people from the local queer community, where we shared stories and found common ground between our two countries (Australia) We hope to attend the festival again!
