Albert’s film The Commitment will screen in the United Kingdom at Flikkers Queer Film Festival, which runs February 26-March 1, 2021. The film screens in Strand C: Queer Journeys, which will be available to watch on the Flikkers Queer Film Festival website.
Flikkers aims to provide a platform for films that are representative of the fantastically diverse queer community, with a special emphasis on films directed and/or produced by Queer/Trans/Intersex People of Colour (QTIPOC), who are underrepresented in the film industry.
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 and on the Queerbee streaming platform. The film is produced by Albert, Richard Possemato, Aaron Howland, and Seth Howland.
