A new full length feature that posits the question 'What if gay was straight and straight was gay?' will screen in Nashville, and organizers plan to donate proceeds to Nashville CARES.
Genius Pictures and director Kim Rocco Shields will release Love Is All You Need?, which takes place in a world where homosexuality is the norm and heterosexuality is taboo, by traveling across the United States for special screenings and events in 20 cities. Members of the filmmaking team, cast members, and special guests will appear at screenings.
Due to Hurricane Matthew the tour had to reroute inland and Nashville was chosen to replace two Florida showings. The film will be shown on Saturday, October 15, 2016 at Play Dance Bar at 6pm. Doors open at 5:30pm and a 30-minute Q&A will follow the screening. A $10 admission fee, which includes admission to Play for the remainder of the evening (for those over 18 years), will go directly to Nashville CARES.
The film developed out of a short film, also directed by Kim Rocco Shields, which leaked on the internet in 2013, igniting conversation worldwide. The short examines the same the topics of bullying and intolerance, but focuses specifically on one young girl’s story.
The 20 city tour will end in late November, leading up to a digital release on Thanksgiving Day via iTunes. After one million downloads, a million-dollar fund entitled: Love Is All You Need – The MovieMent, will be created for all participating nonprofits. This fund will be distributed among the nonprofits to assist in their continuing support of spreading the message of this important film.
