Our short in support of same sex marriage, “Marriage Equality” was selected out of 235 entries from all across the world to show in the 2010 Lights, Camera, Help Film Festival in Austin, Texas!! Tom Pastorelle edited this piece and it was shot by Ben Chappell. But virtually everyone at Foundation touched this film in some way and we’re all very proud to see it accepted to this festival! The piece was originally created for F.A.I.R. in support of abolishing Prop 8.
Early this year it was selected as one of three finalists by the E-Hero Awards selection committee for the 2010 Human Rights Campaign Gala in Los Angeles. The Gala featured U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer, as well as actresses Portia DeRossi and Kathy Griffin, who received the Ally for Equality Award.
The festival takes place July 29th – 31st and Foundation L.A.’s Stacy Paris and Anna Patel will be attending the event on our behalf to conduct the Q&A after it screens.
We are proud to have been given the opportunity to contribute to the cause and thrilled that our piece has been selected for this prestigious event!
