LGBT-focused U.S. distributor Wolfe Releasing has acquired worldwide distribution rights to “Boy Meets Girl” and “Tiger Orange.” The release of these two films will complement Wolfe’s upcoming March 2015 release of Swiss Oscar submission and Berlin Teddy Award Winner, “The Circle, which it acquired early last year.
Eric Schaeffer’s “Boy Meets Girl” is a transgender love story that stars Michael Welch (“Twilight”) and breakout star Michelle Hendley. “Tiger Orange” is a gritty family drama about two gay brothers, played by Mark Strano and former adult film actor Frankie Valenti, who reunite years after the death of their homophobic father. Both films have garnered multiple awards while making their rounds on the festival circuit, including Best Feature at FilmOut San Diego for “Boy Meets Girl” and Best Actor (Mark Strano) at OutFest for “Tiger Orange.”
“Boy Meets Girl” will be available on VOD and across multiple digital platforms beginning April 7, followed by a DVD release on April 28. “Tiger Orange” will be released later in the year.
