We are already in the process of shooting a documentary about the national gay flag football league and their Superbowl tournament played once a year to crown a national champion. 10 years ago, a national gay football league was formed (http://ngffl.com/) and has been building forward ever since. There are teams in over 21 cities and in New York alone, there is a 14 team, 160 player league that plays a fall and spring season every year. The national super bowl draws the best players from all the leagues around the country. The Superbowls are events, but they're also a very serious competition played by guys ranging from former NFL and college football players, to great athletes from other sports that were intimidated to play football growing up because of the culture it breeds. For some, it's a profound healing. For others, it's a great release and a wonderfully run organization that builds the same kind of personal and team growth that sports are known for, just with more flare and color.

We've been following 4 teams since they began their team selection and practices for the tournament 3 months ago. We will be following them through the tournament and for a period of time afterwards. We're looking to raise finishing funds so that we can keep the post production, editing and festival submission process moving smoothly. We believe in the powerful and inspiring message this film will offer and we are committed to getting it out as soon as possible. Any and all allies are greatly appreciated in this.
