qFLIX Worcester 2019; New England’s LGBTQ+ Film Festival is proud to announce our opening night film will be “From Zero to I Love You,” an LGBTQ+ film shot in association with qFLIX.

This amazing film is from writer and director Doug Spearman (“Hot Guys with Guns”) and staring Darryl Stephens (”Noah’s Ark,” “Boy Culture”) and Scott Bailey (“The Bay”).

Stephens plays Pete Logsdon-just a guy in Philadelphia who happens to have a history of getting involved with married men. His father, played by veteran Richard Lawson and his soon-to-be stepmom Leslie Zemeckis, are on him to find someone who’s actually available and to settle down. Instead, he finds a man named Jack, played by Bailey, who is fifteen years into a perfect marriage with two beautiful children and an enviable wife, Keili Lefkovitz.

Doug Spearman will be in attendance for the opening of the festival and will be presented with the qFLIX Worcester 2019 Artistic Achievement in Directing Award.

At a recent meeting in Philadelphia, Mr. Spearman made this statement after expressing how he “wanted to make a movie about the Philly that I saw since I was a kid. Being from Washington, D.C., I’ve been coming to Philadelphia my whole life. But it wasn’t till I was here showing my first film that I really saw Philly. Saw all the beautiful side streets and the alley ways and the still thriving colonial heart of this city. I also wanted to make a film about an African American who didn’t need a white savior. There are no saviors in the film. People stand and fall by their own decisions and actions in the film. Learning who you are when things fall apart is very important to me. Especially when things fall apart because of love.”

And Doug did exactly that and we are so proud that this film is the opening night selection of qFLIX Worcester 2019.

Come enjoy the festival’s opening night film on October 10, 2019, 7:30 PM at Bull Mansion, 55 Pearl Street, Worcester, and enjoy our opening night party afterwards at CLUBq, an LGBTQ+ Pop-up Dance Bar.
