GAME FACE shows the quest to self-realization of LGBTQ athletes and the acceptance in society. This documentary tells the parallel story of Fallon Fox, MMAs first transgender pro fighter, and Terrence Clemens, a college basketball player in Oklahoma who happens to be gay. The film follows both athletes during their coming out process, and sheds light on the obstacles LGBT sports players deal with throughout their career. Former NBA star Jason Collins shines as a mentor for Terrence in this inspiring documentary. Directed by Michiel Thomas.  This film will have a moderated Q&A with Director Michiel Thomas, documentary subject Terrence Clemens and Executive Director of TeamDC Brent Minor.

Naz and Malik offers a slice-of-life adventure set on the vibrant streets of Brooklyn, this impressive debut feature from writer-director Jay Dockendorf follows the title duo, a pair of gay, black, devout Muslim and closeted teens who become unwitting targets of the government’s War on Terror. Introspective Naz (Kerwin Johnson, Jr.) is pretty sure that most change in the world is “bad change,” while Maalik (Curtiss Cook, Jr.), with an easy smile and a more positive outlook, tries to keep both their spirits high as they bounce around the city one meandering afternoon. They flirt, argue, make up, make out, just chil—all while under the surveillance of an FBI agent newly assigned to scope out their community. Like Naz and Maalik, the film is quick on its feet, moving effortlessly between sublime moments of teen romance and tense encounters with the law, and the two young lead actors nail every note of the story’s shifting moods. It’s indeed a new New York story—still with hints of Woody Allen, Spike Lee and Sidney Lumet throughout, along with camerawork that lovingly captures every colorful detail of a city constantly in motion—yet it’s also a universal tale of having faith in love despite all obstacles. - Andre Hereford, Film Festival Programming Team Member. Directed by Jay Dockendorf

 In GuidanceDavid Gore a 36 year-old, former child actor, and closeted gay man has no boundaries. After being diagnosed with skin cancer and getting fired from his job, David's desparation intensifies. Using his acting skills, David decides to lie about his resume and job history to fill an opening as a high school guidance counselor. After beginning the job, his students easily detect his lack of experience as a result of David's unconvential and inappropriate counseling methods. After taking things too far, David begins to learn the consequences of his actions...or does he? - Nicole DiFabio, Film Festival Programming Team Lead. Directed by Pat Mills
