Bollywood Beats

Life doesn’t seem to be going according to plan for Raj until he meets Jyoti, an attractive older woman who suggests he start a dance class for Indian women. Raj is leery of the idea, but reluctantly accepts the proposal since it will be a way for him to pursue his love of dance.
While unsuccessful at first, Raj’s class begins to grow with students like Laxmi, a housewife new to the country, Puja an unenthused high school student, and Vincent, a young gay teen who wants to dance regardless of his father’s objections.

Raj’s dream becomes reality when he gets an offer to choreograph an emerging star’s music video. Now, he must decide whether to take the shot

Whistler Pride and Ski Festival is proud to present Bollywood Beats along with presenting sponsors OUTtv and GayDirect. Bollywood Beats starring Sachin Bhatt, a Missouri-born actor who had the lead in the first national tour of Bombay Dreams along with being a talented dancer and great screen presence and fantastic music makes for a great film experience.

Boy Meets Boy – Short Movie

Honest, true and raw. Vincent is searching for love in his isolated perfect life. He turns to online dating sites to meet the One! Steven catches his attention. Mystery and anxiousness builds a mood of desperation that transforms to chaos, curiosity and anticipation. A battle between perfection and passion; nervous romance leads to passion triumphing… or does it? Suspense builds as the battle takes place. Victory is in your perception. Boy Meets Boy

Tennessee Queer

After a few years up north in New York, out and proud Jason Potts returns to his Tennessee hometown only to find things have not changed for the LGBT teenagers. Being gay is still the worst thing to be in Smyth, Tennessee. Wanting to help the gay teenagers in a small way, Jason hatches a plan to them some hope while he’s home for the weekend. Things quickly spiral out of control and Jason is put in charge of the first ever gay pride parade in the sleepy small southern town.

Unknown to Jason, a scheming conservative city councilman is working with a holier-than-thou minister to round up the gay teenagers after the parade and send them off to an ex-gay ministry camp to be cured of their sinful ways.

The LA Weekly says Tennessee Queer “What a sweet, charming film!” The Commercial Appeal “Call it Mayberry LGBT” and the Dallas Voice reviews “a sweet-natured comedy with heart.”
