Openers! What an utterly wonderful July we had. First off, the Outfest screening went so well. Lots of laughs, and kind words. So well-received were we, that we received both a virtual and in-person encore screening! The show also advanced to the Quarterfinals of the ScreenCraft Film Fund, as well as receiving an Honorable Mention in the London-Worldwide Comedy Short Film Festival. Last, there’s been some really nice press written about the show lately! I’ll be doing an interview with Stage 5 Magazine, and already had pieces published in the #1 gay lifestyle and entertainment journal, Instinct Magazine ( https://instinctmagazine.com/frank-arthur-smiths-new-webseries-showcases-polyamory-in-a-new-way/ ). We also received a very kind review of out Outfest screening in the But Why Tho Podcast Review ( https://butwhythopodcast.com/2022/07/26/outfest-la-2022-episodic-features-we-need-more-of-asap/ ) All for now, and one for all! Xoxo Cam & Greg

Openers!


As promised, a very special Pride announcement. Open to It Episodes One and Two will be having their US premiere at Outfest, the biggest LGBTQIA Film Festival in the world!

We're playing in the shorts program: Fellas That Were In the Mood.

On Monday, July 18th at 9:30PM.


Tickets are now available on the main page of the website.


3 + 3 = 6, so the delay this month kinda makes sense? Maybe? Whatever. Being late is queer culture. Get into it!


Lots to share, Openers! God is good to the gays. We were invited to be the opening film of Rio LGBTQIA+ Festival. “Come to Brazil” indeed! We were also selected to be the closing show of qFlix Philadelphia Hybrid Film Festival.


I’ll be interviewing with Instinct Magazine soon about the show, and already spoke with OutFront Magazine. That interview will be out soon, but you can read a piece from me in Authority Magazine here: https://medium.com/authority-magazine/how-writer-producer-frank-arthur-smith-of-open-to-it-is-helping-to-make-the-entertainment-d8e4b2327abd


Thanks to the generosity of Camp TV, we presented the show at RuPaul's DragCon! We had a wonderful time sharing the show with our queer peers, and were also able to introduce the wonderful Manila Luzon into Episode 5 after a lovely meeting.


New Filmmakers Los Angeles is Saturday, June 18th. You can still buy tickets on the main page of our website! Finally, expect to hear from us again later this month, for a very special Pride announcement. Love and kisses!
