In a society where heterosexuality is persecuted and procreation is tightly controlled, two teens are forced to hide an unintended pregnancy before their forbidden romance is exposed.

Written and directed by Sal Bardo, Pink Moon is a precursor/companion piece to a feature-length screenplay, which was a finalist in the CineStory Screenwriting Competition (2013) and Final Draft's Big Break Screenwriting Contest (2013).


Over the last three years, writer-director Sal Bardo's films have screened at nearly 50 film festivals in 10 countries. In 2011, he won the Audience Award for Best First Time Filmmaker at Reel Affirmations: Washington D.C.'s International LGBT Film Festival for his short film Requited, which made its world premiere at the Seattle International Film Festival and is now being distributed on DVD and VOD by Guest House Films. Sal's second film, Sam, tackles gender identity and bullying, while his third project, Chaser, confronts the issue of HIV/AIDS in the gay community. Both shorts screened at film festivals around the world in 2013. www.salbardo.com

Producer Alexandra Pitz is the Director of Development of Loveless, an independent production company founded by producers Carly Hugo and Matt Parker, and associate producer of the upcoming HBO documentary Everything Is Copy, about the life and death of writer-director Nora Ephron, directed by Ephron's son, New York Times writer Jacob Bernstein, and Nick Hooker.

Associate Producer Brandon Tyler Harris (who will also star in the film) has appeared on The Big C, Smash, and Law & Order: SVU.
