If you have ever wondered what happened to a film you first saw at a Docs In Progress work-in-progress screening, this is your opportunity to see the “after” and talk to the filmmakers about the process of making the film as well as its content.
Married in Spandex
by Allison Kole and Devin Gallagher
As they begin a life’s journey together, Amanda and Rachel are determined to make their wedding day a unique and memorable affair. Married in Spandex follows the young women as they navigate their way from their home in the City of Brotherly Love to the town of Ames, Iowa for a celebration like nothing anyone has ever seen. But, at a time when every same-sex wedding is seen as a political act and brides or grooms-to-be are asked to walk the entire LGBT community down the aisle, will everyone be cheering Amanda and Rachel’s offbeat “I do”?
The film was first workshopped at Docs In Progress Trailer Night in 2010. It has since won awards from film festivals around the world. We are very excited that the filmmakers will be joining us to discuss the making of the film following the screening.

NOTE: This is a public screening, so we are expecting more attendees than just Meet-Up members. While an official Meet-Up is not being planned (since Erica has to focus on prep for the screening itself), this is a good way to get to know the programs of Docs In Progress. Filmmakers, aspiring filmmakers, and the general public are all welcome!
