Welcome to Shoga Films


Major Announcements


"Congo Cabaret" was shot in Los Angeles last month, and the footage is gorgeous! Now we're raising money for post-production: editing, sound, color correction. We have big plans for the film once it's done, but in order to get it done, we need YOUR TAX-DEDUCTIBLE DONATION! Please go to our FundRazr website and                  contribute whatever you can! http://bit.ly/queerHR

I normally wouldn't announce a rejection, but the message that came in from The Atlanta Documentary Film Festival for Body and Soul is actually rather heartening, and the film has seen plenty of success elsewhere. "We just wanted you to know that you made it to the final round of judging, but since we only have three days of screenings, we had to cut so many great films. Although we can not include your project this year, please keep in mind, you scored the second highest scores from our panel."
