Boston Screening

25 Oct

This past weekend Finding Me: Truth made it’s debut on the big screen at the HBGC Screening in Boston.  The screening was followed by a great Q&A. Also after the event the cast and audience went to dinner together and the conversation continued. Producer Sontaia P. Briggs say ” As a lover and supporter of education, the Finding Me franchise has a special place in my heart. What many people don’t know is the ultimate vision of the films for me is creating a narrative that can serve as a bridge for communication, understanding and mutual respect between the LGBTQ and Straight communities. After speaking with an attendee in Boston, we learned that they are using the original film to create curriculum for discussions with their youth groups and gay/straight alliance members. This completely touched my heart and was the best news of that trip for me!” A special thank you goes out to Uriah Bell. He is one of the founders of HBGC and was key in bringing the film to Boston. He also facilitated the event.

The people of Houston TX came out this weekend for the screening of Finding Me: Truth and what a wonderful event it was.

The first stop in Houston Friday night was to ‘The Fellas Present: Fall-Back to the Music Party’ at Club HEAT, hosted by Bernard and Lennard Sims. The club was packed with people and the FMT cast were brought up to the DJ booth and introduced to the crowd. A large number of the party goers responded and purchased DVD’s of “Truth” on the spot.

Next stop was the screening of FMT on Saturday afternoon at Club 2020. Jeffrey Campbell (pictured above) with St. Hope Foundation, Inc was instrumental in bringing FMT to Houston. He hosted the event.

The picture above is of Eugene E. Turner (Greg), Miste Roule (Tammy), writer/director Roger Omeus Jr, RayMartell Moore (Faybien) and VP of Marketing for OmeProductions Glenn Maith during the Q&A. The FMT team was engaged in a great discussion with the audience about the film and Black LGBT Community. Stay tuned in the coming weeks to see video footage of the Q&A

Afterward the actors signed DVD’s for the enthusiastic crowd. It was a wonderful moment for the audience to meet the stars of the film, and it was equally wonderful for the actors to meet them.

When we had a moment to catch up with RayMartell (Faybien) and ask him what the experience was like for him he said, “A blessing. Every time we get a chance to meet our audience is a true blessing.”

The Atlanta Premiere of Finding Me: Truth was another successful screening for the fast climbing popular sequel to Finding Me. “Truth” proves once again that the tales of Faybien, Amera, Greg and Jay was worth the wait. The screening was held at the Plaza Theater to a very enthusiastic crowd. Here are just some of the attendees;

                                                                                                                                                                                   

These were just a few of the beautiful faces that came out to the premiere. One of the questions most asked after the screening was, ” Is there going to be another film?” How exciting is that. Can the story of finding oneself continue with these characters? The answer is yes. Writer/Director Roger Omeus Jr responded, ” The next step is a series There is certainly enough stories that can be told through these characters, and it will be exciting, fun and filled with drama.” We can’t wait for more Mr.Omeus!
