The Rainbow Film Festival is thrilled to present a Special Sneak Preview of a new LGBT feature film. HRFF25 alum writer-director Josh Kim (Draft Day) makes his feature film debut with a film that The Hollywood Reporter says, “signals the arrival of a talented and observant artist making killer moves in coaxing the best out of his material and actors.” Set in Thailand with a highly attractive young cast of new and established stars, the film was developed in the first year of the Hawaii International Film Festival’s Creative Lab Writers Accelerator Program. We can’t tell you the name of the film, but we know you won’t be disappointed by this emotional and exciting debut. Hawaii-based Producer Chris Lee will be in attendance.
In its 26th continuous year, the HRFF is one of the longest-running and well-respected Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) film festivals in the country. The festival has presented hundreds of documentaries, feature films, shorts and animations from around the world, with special consideration given to Hawai’i-based filmmakers. The HRFF has an excellentTwoTw reputation in the film festival community and has been the venue for both U.S. and world film premieres. – See more at: http://www.hglcf.org/about-us/#sthash.QZIphHfG.dpuf
