Following the highly successful self-distribution of its 2011 dramatic feature film, Role/Play, Guest House Films announced the launch of its new distribution venture, which allows the company to use the experience of producing five feature films to approach distribution from the filmmakers? point of view. The company hopes to partner with filmmakers who share their creative vision in creating the kinds of movies they ? as gay moviegoers ? want to see.

Black Briefs marks the company?s first foray into this newfound endeavor. The second collection, Blue Briefs, will feature films dealing with relationships and the pain that often comes with love. Blue Briefs is expected to be released in the second quarter of 2012. Additional short-film compilations are scheduled to be released quarterly on an ongoing basis.

As part of its expansion into distribution, Guest House Films is currently accepting submissions of gay-themed short films, documentaries and feature films for consideration. Films must be in English or have English subtitles. DVD submissions can be sent to Guest House Films, P.O.
