GAMEFACE-KEYComing to VOD today, Monday, February 1: GAME FACE

Michiel Thomas’ look at the coming out process of two LGBT athletes made its bow at the Miami LGBT film fest last year. In addition to DOC NYC, it toured extensively on the LGBT circuit, including Frameline, QDoc, Inside Out, FilmOut San Diego, Vancouver, Real Affirmations, Mix Copenhagen, and Austin, among others. The doc now premieres exclusively on VOD on Netflix before expanding to other platforms including iTunes, Google Play, and Amazon Prime tomorrow.

I previously wrote about the film for DOC NYC’s program, saying:
While societal acceptance of LGBT people has grown significantly in recent years, resistance remains in certain domains, such as the sports world. GAME FACE follows two athletes who are contemplating coming out: Mixed Martial Artist Fallon Fox, a transgender woman who worries about unwanted media scrutiny, and Terrence Clemens, an up-and-coming college basketball player seeking redemption for past mistakes. Michiel Thomas captures their struggles and triumphs as they navigate the fraught terrain of living their lives openly in the public eye.
