  • THE COMMITMENT Premieres on Sixth Continent: Australia

    January 13, 2020
  • The Commitment, directed by Albert, will premiere on its sixth continent, Australia, at the 4th PRIDE Queer Film Festival in Perth, running March 4-10, 2020, at The Backlot Studios Perth.

    The Commitment stars Albert and Jason Lane Fenton as gay adoptive parents, Mary Niederkorn as the social worker facilitating the adoption, and Kerri Patterson as the Asian-American birthmother. Richard Propes of The Independent Critic wrote, "Emotional resonance, joy and heartbreak...indeed, this is a film that would be difficult to pull off if not for its tremendously talented cast." The film has screened at over 40 film festivals on six continents and won multiple awards, most notably edging out Oscar®-nominated Moonrise Kingdom to win a 2013 NASW Media Award. The film is available at Amazon.com on the compilation Green Briefs. The film is produced by Albert, Richard Possemato, Aaron Howland, and Seth Howland.

    Welcome to the World, also directed by Albert M. Chan, will also screen at the 4th PRIDE Queer Film Festival.
