Hunky Rib Hillis wants your help in getting his film “Birthday Cake” served up in RedBox and Netflix
Last fall, I had the pleasure of conducting the post-screening Q&A of the film Birthday Cake at the Long Beach Gay & Lesbian Film Festival and hope the movie can be seen by as many people as possible.
It is a sequel to a short film called Groom Cake that I saw at the Palm Springs gay & lesbian fest which told the story of the three days leading up to two guys getting married – they are played by writer-director Chad Darnell and Rib Hillis who is the naked guy in the photo that got our attention!
The feature film covers the three days leading up to the first birthday party for the baby they have adopted and adds to the cast such well-known names as Helen Shaver, Lee Meriwether, and Helen Shaver. Peter Paige appears in both films.
Like all indie films, the key is distribution. In May, Birthday Cake will be distributed through Ariztical Entertainment and available on mulitple platforms of Video On Demand, Video Download and DVD.
But the filmmakers we want to get the movie into Red Box.
Red Box traditionally does not stock LGBT genre films but did stock the documentary Bridegroom which did well.
Redbox is currently reviewing the movie for consideration and Netflix is next and filmmakers want to create more buzz and social media presence for the movie. Click HERE to find out how you can help.
