Albert won the award for Best Directing for The Commitment at the UK-based Flikkers Queer Film Festival, which screened 32 films this past weekend.

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 on the compilation Green Briefs and on the Queerbee streaming platform. The film is produced by Albert, Richard Possemato, Aaron Howland, and Seth Howland.
