TO COMPETE IN THE GAME,
THEY HAD TO FIGHT THEIR WAY ONTO THE FIELD.
400 ATHLETES, 26 TEAMS, ONE GOAL:
TO BE THE NEXT GAY BOWL CHAMPIONS.
GOOD LUCK KEEPING THESE GUYS IN THE CLOSET!
Three teams and their journey to become the next Gay Bowl Champions. With everything on the line, some teams will come together and others will fall apart, but gay sports will never be seen the same way again. --GayTimesUK
F(L)AG FOOTBALL is a full length feature that follows a group of competitive gay athletes on their journey to the National Gay Flag Football Championships. An audience and jury award-winning favorite on the 2016 festival circuit, the film interweaves footage of competitive games, tournament events, off-field relationships, and deeply personal interviews leading up to and through the "Gay Bowl" in Phoenix, AZ. Embedded camera crews capture unprecedented access to the intimate lives of the players, and what emerges is a portrait of stereotype-breaking athletes wrestling with complex identities and team dynamics, all while competing in 90-plus degree heat for the chance to be crowned champions. With everything on the line, some teams will come together and others will show their cracks, but everyone will have a chance to play out, play proud, and show the world that being gay is not a limitation in any arena, and certainly not in sports. -- Fascinating & Exciting! --TheVillageVoice
That's how you want life to be: people judged on their abilities and without foolish preconceptions. And if we're not there yet, this likable film at least offers several optimistic moments. --TheNewYorkTimes
The film offers lively and moving character sketches and interviews amid its glimpses of practice and games; there are many spectacular catches and touchdowns, plus some first-rate trash talk. --LAWeekly
It's a film that seeks to tell a story about athletes - these particular athletes - and the personal sacrifices they've made to be able to play the sport they love. But it's so much more than that. It's a film that shatters stereotypes about both athletes and gay men, and gives the world an image of gay men that has never really been showcased before. --RollingStone -- A must see for anyone who loves sports!
