Pride Month Event - BRYAN HORCH: Making Films, Making Change
Allen Young and Diane Lincoln are pleased to host an evening with filmmaker Bryan Horch as part of our 8th Annual Pride Series in “the back corner”. Bryan will present two of his comic narrative shorts, discuss his upcoming release, “Spooners,” and speak with us about his career and using film to make a positive difference in the world.
For more than fifteen years, Bryan Horch has made films and interactive media to educate, entertain and effect social change. Also a nationally certified American Sign Language Interpreter, his film work spans topics from Deaf Culture, reproductive health, LGBTQI issues, and human rights to comic narrative shorts, music videos and socially-conscious PSAs.
Horch has worked on the award-winning PBS documentaries, “Chicano! History of the Mexican-American Civil Rights Movement,” and “History through Deaf Eyes.” His most recent directorial projects include “Crossing Borders”, a documentary about the effects of HIV/ AIDS on post-apartheid Namibia, “House of Signs,” an independent documentary focusing on the daily lives and struggles of a modern-day Deaf Cuban family, and “Out for Health,” a commercial for Planned Parenthood’s LGBT Health campaign.
Mr. Horch was awarded two Telly Awards for Directing, a Communicator Award for Interactive Design, and a World Medal for Directing from the New York Festivals. His comic narrative shorts “Beautiful” and “Brokeback Screentests” were audience favorites at the William & Mary GALA and CineSlam Film Festivals.
On World AIDS Day in December 2010, Horch’s “Deaf Safer-Sex VLOG” series was the first video in American Sign Language ever featured on YouTube’s home page, with over 200,000 views to date.
