F(l)ag Football

F(L)AG FOOTBALL is a feature length documentary 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.
