About CHILDREN OF GOD:

Against a backdrop of scare-mongering and hate, the film, directed by Kareem J. Mortimer, introduces Jonny (Johnny Ferro), a creatively-blocked art student struggling with an obsessive-compulsive disorder that sees him cringe away from any human touch; Romeo (Stephen Tyrone Williams) a young man struggling with his obligations towards his family and his band; and the devoutly religious Lena Mackey (Margaret Laurena Kemp) an anti-gay activist whose hypocritical preacher husband has just given her a sexually-transmitted disease. On the Bahamian island of Eleuthera, these three people’s paths collide, with life-changing results.

Brown-Ross in 2008 is an Avant-garde film festival that will bring you the best films about the Black LGBT experience from around the world. The three-day festival consists of showcasing the work of both gay and straight award-winning filmmakers of African descent ground-breaking films. The festival also includes industry base panel discussions and workshops, great networking social events and parties, closing with a prestigious Award ceremony, honoring officially selected film makers.

The mission of the festival is to provide a platform for both gay and straight filmmakers of African Descent to present their work about the Black LGBT experience from around the world. We aim to provide solid networking opportunities connecting major resource organizations, major industry professionals with the indie artist.
