Meet the Filmmaker: Gino Alfonso, “Shoes”



imageQ: Why did you become a filmmaker?

GA: To tell different and amazing stories.

Q: What are we going to see at the EFP? Has it screened elsewhere and what are  your plans for it?

GA: It is a powerful story about change and acceptance. This is the first film festival for Shoes, but it has played well on YouTube and has been on some of the biggest LGBTQ websites on Facebook and is also playing on public access television on channel 35 here in Denver.

Q: What else are you working on?

GA: I am currently wrapping post on another short film called Lizzy, also an LGBTQ film and a horror short called Dawn and I am developing my first feature.

Q: Tell us one weird thing about you and/or your movies?

GA: They are all family oriented no matter the genre.

Q: Where can people go to find out more about you and your work?

GA: I have a website coming soon and you can find us on Facebook under Gino Alfonso.

Q: Is there anything you’d like to say about The Emerging Filmmakers Project?

GA: I think this is a great opportunity for upcoming local filmmakers to share their work.

“Shoes” will screen June 18th at the Emerging Filmmaker’s Project.
