Help fund Project Homophobia film

Gregor Schmidinger’s 2008 short film The Boy Next Door has received its share of positive attention, and to date, has had over 52,000 viewings on Vimeo. The film, while mildly suffering a few stilted moments between adult and child actors, is a well-executed narrative fragment about a male prostitute, his client and his client’s son, where the intersection of the three brings up issues of anxiety, tenderness and power.

The Boy Next Door was chosen as this week’s FFP because Schmidinger has launched a fundraising campaign at Indiegogo for a new film called Project Homophobia – a “collaborative short film about gay bullying.” There are nine days left to donate to the campaign. Visit the project’s Indiegogo page to contribute today.
