We are happy to announce that Go Straight Home will reach Canadian and international festival audiences at TIFF International Kids Film Festival where it has been selected to screen in the fantastic shorts programmes Hear Me alongside Stealth, Born With It and Yussef is Complicated. Films that represent important themes such as sexual and reproductive rights and transgender rights, rascism and bullying.
The festival writes; "In this collection of shorts, children deal with challenges greater than what many adults will ever face. It’s often easier to turn away from your true self, giving in to bullies and naysayers. Displaying courage and a strong sense of self-worth, these young people fight to honour their identities and achieve their goals".
Go Straight Home will also screen at Brooklyn Girl Film Festival, a festival with a mission to showcase the work of women filmmakers from around the world.
