Coming Out and On We Go

comingoutday

Today, Sunday 11th October, is Coming Out Day around the world.

Coming out is the biggest decision a young gay person can face, so it’s important that they have the support and advice needed. Fortunately, even those young people living in remote spaces or in isolated family environments can find support online. Check out some of the great sites that provide comprehensive resources below.

Meanwhile, THE LANGUAGE OF LOVE continues to be seen around the world, with more than 1.2 millions views to date across YouTube, vimeo and on a number of platforms in China (where it has amassed more than 280,000 views).

We are also still screening at festivals around the world (see the complete list so far on our Festivals page).

In October, the film (사랑의 언어) will be screening in South Korea, at Chung-Ang University’s Feminists Unite with Queers Film Festival, following its screening earlier this year as the closing film at the 2015 Korean Queer Film Festival.

In November, we are playing at the Bibliothèque d’Olivet in France, as part of Le Mois du Film Documentaire, in the program L’Art de la Belle Écriture.

Two new interviews with Kim

Two new interviews with Kim have been published recently, each with its own particular perspective on THE LANGUAGE OF LOVE.

In the interview for DANIEL, the leading US publication for gay Asian men, Kim talks about the discussions he had with mentor Tommy Murphy on deciding the overall arc of the film, and discovering the piece’s emotion core. He also talks about his current projects and future plans. Read the piece by clicking below.

The second interview, for PERIL, a magazine exploring Asian-Australian culture and arts, Kim talks about his dual cultural background, and the impact of the film on Asian-Australian viewers.

Meanwhile, the film has had a fantastic response at festivals in Glasgow, Dublin, New York (see Laura at the Asian American Film Festival, below) and Vancouver, and 8 more festivals have now confirmed they will be showing the film in the next two months, bringing the film to live audiences in Australia, China, Germany, Denmark and 3 cities in the US.
