Although a few states made inroads towards same-sex marriage, most of the country is still in a battle over these wedding ceremonies.
On pastor, Reverend Frank Schaefer of Pennsylvania defied the United Methodist Church to officiate his son’s same sex wedding. It resulted in a news spectacle that places Schaefer on trial for his defiance with the church.
Director Scott Sheppard (PLANES, TRAINS & AUTORICKSHAWS) captured the entire ordeal in his documentary AN ACT OF LOVE as the entire family is thrust into the fight for equality for the LBGTQ community.
The documentary won numerous awards at film festivals, including Mill Valley Film Festival Silver Audience Award, San Luis Obispo International Film Festival Best in the Fest award, Best Documentary Jury Award at the Outflix Film Festival and Audience Choice at the Fairy Tales Queer Film Festival in Calgary.
The documentary will be available to VOD/Digital and DVD through Virgil Films on January 10. Click here for more information.
AN ACT OF LOVE was produced by Kate S. Logan (KIDNAPPED FOR CHRIST) and executive produced by Pauley Perrette (NCIS), Mike C. Manning (KIDNAPPED FOR CHRIST), and Bill Smith of Civitas Public Affairs Group.
