The new feature film WELCOME TO THE MEN’S GROUP is a comedy/drama about the modern phenomenon of men's support groups. It takes a very intimate look at the need for men to learn to talk about their feelings and find their integrity in a world with changing attitudes on masculinity. By turns funny and poignant, the film soberly tackles issues of male shame, relationships, fatherhood, sex addiction, suicide, competition and grief. After playing multiple festivals and doing dozens of preview screenings with panel discussions in the U.S. and Europe, we will hold our official Los Angeles premiere on May 16. This event will act as a red carpet gala event fundraiser, with proceeds going to support several non-profit organizations that raise awareness on men’s issues today. The film opens on May 18 at Laemmle Music Hall in Beverly Hills.

Our goal with making this film is to shine an empathic light on evolving male consciousness today and further the community, growth, and healing for men. In the rising tide of awareness on male sexual misconduct and the empowerment of the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements, the timeliness of the film’s message couldn’t be better.
We have received strong support from men’s and women’s organizations, including Planned Parenthood, The Mankind Project, The Good Men Project, Movember, and Men’s Center Los Angeles. Women in particular have hailed the film as a “breakthrough for male and feminist awareness”. We believe this is a great opportunity to draw more attention to the current gender issues with a Los Angeles event prior to our theatrical release in select cities.
