The Surrogate

Jess is thrilled to be the surrogate for her best friend and his husband, but when a prenatal test comes back positive, it creates a moral dilemma that threatens their friendship.

For They Know Not What They Do

From the director of the acclaimed FOR THE BIBLE TELLS ME SO comes FOR THEY KNOW NOT WHAT THEY DO, a new documentary that explores the intersection of religion, sexual orientation and gender identity in current-day America. The film won Audience Awards at Atlanta, Seattle, Ft. Lauderdale, Rochester, Phoenix & Warsaw Film Festivals.


Impeccably acted and carefully directed, this bittersweet, little gem of a drama revolves around a single mother, her shy son, and the unlikely friendship forged with the gruff Korean War vet that lives next door.

Winner of multiple awards, including the Queer Lion from the 75th Annual Venice Film Festival, JOSÉ is a gripping, layered and beautifully honest story about one working class young man’s struggle to find himself. Made in the neorealist filmmaking tradition, the film is a nuanced and vivid look at being gay in Central America.
