Media Inquiries

“OUT of ANNAPOLIS” is currently in the final stages of “post production” and expected to be ready for release in early spring 2010.

The film is about U.S. Naval Academy Alumni who now identify as LGBT. It will not include any active duty or reserve personnel, including midshipmen. All those appearing in the film are USNA alumni, telling their personal stories and no others.

The Producer/Director, Steve Clark Hall, has been a “visionary” benefactor at Frameline for many years. The production was launched at the encouragement of the directors/staff of several LGBT film festivals including Three Dollar Bill Cinema (Seattle) the Pikes Peak Lavender Film Festival (Colorado Springs) who constantly seek out material which would be of interest to their audiences.

Although “Don't Ask Don't Tell” (DADT) played a key factor in the lives of some the participants, the film would risk being “overcome by events” prior to or soon after the first screening if it were a commentary targeting DADT. The desired outcome of the film is to provide viewers with a keen appreciation of the powerful positive influence the Naval Academy has upon the lives of those who are privileged to attend, despite their LGBT identity.

The initial public screening will be in New York 12 June, 2010.
