First Girl I Loved - Australian Screenings

BY FilmInk | 21-Apr-2017
Sydney, AU - 21th of April 2017 - FilmInk, in conjunction with Arcadia, are presenting event screenings of First Girl I Loved around Australia, and in the grand cinema tradition of yore, the feature will be accompanied by short film Lo Loves You by emerging Australian filmmaker Cloudy Rhodes. Online screeners and interviews are available on request.
In the Sundance Audience Award winning First Girl I Loved, high-school misfit Anne falls in love with Sasha, the beautiful star of the softball team. When Anne tells her best friend Clifton about her new crush, his confusion threatens more than just the girls’ budding romance.

Directed by Kerem Sanga and starring Deadpool’s Brianna Hildebrand and Dylan Gelula of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, First Girl I Loved is in the great tradition of teen films such as The Breakfast Club, which explore the teenage experience with compassion and nuance.

Described as “a woozy and wonderful queer teen romance” (David Ehrlich, Indiewire), and “a sensitive exploration of sexual identity… a sophisticated and complex teenage coming of age story” (Katie Walsh, The Playlist), First Girl I Loved is a film for today that will be remembered for years to come.
