A Quote From the Director
“As a filmmaker, having my debut film selected for the prestigious Outfest film festival is a dream come true. It is an honour to be part of such a celebrated event in the heart of Hollywood, where creativity and diversity thrive. The opportunity to showcase my work at the renowned Director’s Guild of America theatre, following a successful screening at the iconic Castro Theatre in San Francisco, is truly humbling.
This recognition is a testament to the dedication and passion poured into this project, and I am excited to share my vision with audiences who appreciate the power of storytelling. It’s a significant milestone in my career, and I am grateful for this incredible opportunity to make an impact through the art of cinema.”
