Neon Boys
To be a father, you have to make difficult choices. Having a hard time landing a job after spending time in prison, Shawn (Matty Gliteratti) decides to try his hand at making ends meet by working as an erotic dancer. It’s all in an effort, ultimately, to support his daughter. While he’s there, though, stripping down to make some cash, he finds that he’s beginning to fall in love with a man… for the first time in his life. A stylish, candy-colored and deeply heartfelt short film from prolific indie director AJ Mattioli and co-director/star Jonathan Salazar, Neon Boys has charm and sex appeal to spare. This thirty-minute short also co-stars accomplished character actor and multiple award-winner Vincent De Paul.

Your Eyes on Me
Your Eyes on Me tells the story of a romantic encounter that changes the life of a drag artist forever. The film follows Gloria (Paul Stone), an accomplished drag queen whose life changes in a variety of unexpected ways when she meets Kandi (Jean-Philippe Boriau), a drag virgin auditioning for her next show. As the bond develops between the two, their relationship takes an unexpected turn. Suddenly the past – and the choices that Gloria made as a young man – come into stark reality. A touching drama from writer-director Sergei Alexander, Your Eyes on Me has earned rave reviews from critics. Film & TV Now called it “compactly structured with an effectively shocking revelation which confounds the very core of emotions.”

Bombshell
Bombshell is a short web comedy about Jay (Ellis David Perry), a queer transman navigating the shark-infested waters of LA’s gay dating scene. He’s young, he’s single, and he’s really just looking for fun and sex, meeting guys mostly on hookup apps. But, when the bedroom door closes, his private world becomes an arena for cis men and the questions they only feel safe to ask in private. Jay’s chosen family is with him on his journey: Selena (Jessica Rosas), Darlene (Cheril Vendetti) and Penis Mascot (Charles Johnson), the cartoon caped penis who personifies his id. When he meets Joe (Havon Baraka), a kind guy who’s really into him, he must learn self respect to save any hope for his new relationship.
