Angelus Alumni Justin Lerner screens feature at Family Theater Productions

1/18/2012

Angelus hosted the CORNELL CLUB of HOLLYWOODgirlfriend at Family Theater on January 11 where Justin Lerner, (2008 Angelus DIRECTORS CHOICE winner) screened his award winning feature film GIRLFRIEND, followed by a Q&A.

Justin credited ANGELUS as the reason his debut feature was produced. While on a trip to Sundance with Angelus to the Windrider Forum, Justin met a producer who went on to fund his film. During the Angelus’ Prague trip, Justin was inspired to pen GIRLFRIEND, an indie drama about a young man with Down Syndrome and his desire for a girlfriend. GIRLFRIEND debuted at the Toronto International Film Festival and recently won the Audience Prize at the prestigious GOTHAM AWARDS in New York. Justin has also accepted an invitation to join the 2012 Angelus Festival Jury.
