“Stella Walsh” had an incredible sold-out screening on the morning of June 27th at the Frameline Film Festival with an outstanding Q&A. I was lucky enough to be invited to some amazing parties and meet many new filmmaking friends. We are enjoying the rest of the day together in the Castro district watching parades and dancing to almost a dozen DJs. These photos don’t do the size of the celebration any justice! Thanks to the festival and all of our supporters!
Stella Walsh: A Documentary will make its Pittsburgh premiere at thePittsburgh Independent Film Festival on June 28 at the Baverso Theatre!
We are honored to announce that “Stella Walsh” will make its New York premiere at the Northside Festival on June 8th! It looks like an amazing event!

It’s a tremendous honor to announce that “Stella Walsh” has been nominated for the Bud Greenspan Award by the Track & Field Writers of America. Greenspan was one of the most prominent and celebrated filmmakers to ever write and direct documentaries about Olympic athletes.
The award was created in 2010 by his filmmaking partner, Nancy Beffa, just after his death. It is presented each year to the best track and field movie as determined by the T&FWA. This year “Stella” is one of eight movies nominated. The winner will be announced at a special program in New York on February 12 and the award will be presented on February 14 at the Millrose Games, which, coincidentally, was the event where Stella Walsh broke her first World Record in 1930.
Thank you to Nancy Beffa, Jack Pfeiffer and Kimberley Spir for considering “Stella Walsh” for this award.
We are headed to North Dakota for the 2015 Fargo Film Festival! Dates and times to be announced soon!
I’m very excited to announce that “Stella Walsh: A Documentary” is an official selection for the 2015 Slamdance Film Festival. If you haven’t heard of it, Slamdance is kind of the punk rock little brother/sister of Sundance. It takes place at the same time and location, which will be in January in Park City, UT. Let’s celebrate!
I do not have a date or time for the screening yet, but it will be posted as soon as I find out!
