What About Shelley (2017)

Billy and Shelley are best friends, but their friendship is greatly tested when Shelley's boyfriend, Adam, secretly comes out to Billy - the only other gay man he knows.

What About Shelley was funded through the inaugural Inside Out BravoFACT Pitch Competition, a 50,000$ prize awarded to director Kyle Reaume by Inside Out LGBT Film Festival and BravoFACT.

Kyle wrote, directed, and starred in the short, his debut leading role. Kyle also served as co-editor on the picture.

The short co-stars Alyssa Owsiany (Softcore, Tulip Texas and Us), and Daniel Kelly (Degrassi: The Next Generation).

Shelley celebrated its world premiere at Inside Out on June 1st, and has since screened at 18 festivals worldwide.
