(Montreal, QC) — Adult Time original feature Teenage Lesbian and its talented leading lady Kristen Scott have been formally recognized by the Palm Springs-based Queen Palm International Film Festival for cinematic excellence.
The critically-lauded coming-of-sexual-age tale from award-winning filmmaker Bree Mills won the First Quarter Silver Best Feature Film – Love is Love Award and Teenage Lesbian star Kristen Scott earned a Best Actress nomination and Honorable Mention for her heartbreakingly real portrayal of Sam, a high school senior coming to terms with her sexuality in the ‘90s.
“We were thrilled to have Teenage Lesbian officially selected as part of this year’s Queen Palm International Film Festival, especially to see our lead Kristen Scott receive a nomination for best actress,” said Mills, Adult Time’s Chief Creative Officer.
“Now to learn that we’ve won their first quarter silver award for Best Feature – Love is Love is an amazing feeling… we look forward to taking the film to their annual competition next fall and continuing to expose this project to new audiences!”
Scott, who was brought on board by Mills earlier this year to direct for her popular Girlsway studio, said, “I am so grateful for the recognition of this film. We put in blood, sweat and many, many tears. I want to thank Bree for trusting me with Sam, this meant so much to me.
“Thank you for giving me the opportunity to help share your story. This was an experience of a lifetime that many people will get to enjoy. I still can’t believe I was nominated and received an Honorable Mention for Best Actress. Thank you to everyone at Queen Palm for the recognition!”
