The US gay surfer film Shelter will be screening soon as part of the Mardi Gras Film Festival.

Shelter tells the story of Zack, who has had to sacrifice his art school dreams to help his sister raise her son.  Life isn’t all bad however.  He spends his days skateboarding and surfing on California’s picturesque coast, joined by Shaun, his best friend’s older brother, back in town from a stint in Hollywood. It’s not long before the two find themselves sleeping on the beach in each others’ arms, and the difficulties of a gay romance in San Pedro begin to play on their lives.

Shelter is the first film to come out of a new production initiative at the US cable network here!, and it proves they are fulfilling their commitment to bringing authentic queer stories to TV screens.

Shelter will play 16 and 26  February at the Palace Academy Twin. Details: www.queerscreen.com.au.
