Tony&Denise: Cinematic Memoir of Denise D’Anne

Brian Favorite, a graduate of BECA's MA program and Cinema's MFA program, will have his film, Tony&Denise: Cinematic Memoir of Denise D’Anne, premiere at the upcoming 2023 San Francisco Documentary Festival.

The 26-minute experimental documentary film tells the life of pioneering transgender labor activist Denise D’Anne. It is based on Denise’s autobiography, Going the Distance: The Life of Denise D’Anne, and presents a cinematic-memoir-love-letter about a gender-feminist-social-environmental-justice pioneer, narrated in her own words.

The screening is scheduled for Saturday, June 3 at 12:00 p.m. in the Roxie Theater House 1. The film will also stream online during the festival run from June 1 to June 11. You can find more information about the film and tickets to the screening here:
