Girl on Girl is a groundbreaking film in the LGBTQ and documentary film genres that highlights the emotional consequences of feminine lesbian invisibility— the phenomenon that, due to their feminine or “passing” appearance, countless LGBTQ women are rendered invisible and assumed to be straight by the outside world and to each other. This concept has heretofore been widely overlooked in LGBTQ media. The cast is made up of seven women who challenge assumptions of what society imagines a lesbian to look like and offer fundamentally different narratives of how invisibility has impacted their lives. Each story intimately reveals that coming out on a daily basis is a repetitive act, not a one-time proclamation. The film’s cast features ‘celesbian’ Lauren
Bedford Russell (The Real L Word: Season 3), along with several other women from around the country, including New York, Florida, Utah, and North Carolina It recently played at the Miami Gay and Lesbian Film Festival, St. Louis International Film Festival, and will soon play in Sydney, at Australia’s Mardi Gras Film Festival.
Girl on Girl is unique because of its overwhelming social media success. The Girl on Girl Facebook
community is made up of nearly 440,000 fans, of which 86% are women, and its posts ORGANICALLY engage millions of LGBTQ women and allies worldwide. Girl on Girl proves its worth to the LGBTQ community on a daily basis. Recognized by lesbians internationally, the documentary has been generating buzz for nearly three year ahead of its release. Fans of the film actively engage with the Facebook page moderators
and each other. Girl on Girl is produced and directed by Brooklyn-based filmmaker, Jodi Savitz, and coproduced
by Italian Golden Globe winner, Dahlia Heyman, and Lauren Savitz. It is sponsored by the prestigious non-profit, New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA), and therefore any donations made to NYFA on its behalf are tax-deductible.
