  • Thank you for honoring my screenplay ALTA CALIFORNIA as AWARD WINNER. My screenplays tells true story of the effect of the Mission Era on indigenous peoples of California. It speaks through the eyes of mixed-blood young man trying to find his home, where he belongs, in this rapidly changing land.

    I was really happy with this selection. I have a subtitled version of the film and I have to think that helped bring the story closer to the audience. I want to thank this festival for broadening our film's outreach and for their belief in us that the conflicts and yearnings of Love transcend language. So glad you let our story "meet" your audience. Stephen Keep Mills, writer/director Love is not Love
