Prairie Pride Film Festival

Highlighting the festival are two films that will make their Midwestern premieres Feb. 26 after success at festivals on both coasts. "A Marine Story" addresses the military ban on gays through the story of one woman. The film has been honored at numerous festivals, most notably winning Grand Jury and Audience Awards at Outfest in Los Angeles. "Undertow (Contracorriente)" is a ghost story set on the Peruvian seaside. This tale of a married fisherman struggling to reconcile his devotion to his male lover within his town's rigid traditions has been honored with 39 film festival awards including a World Cinema Audience Award at the Sundance Film Festival. It is also Peru's official entry for the 2011 Academy Awards.

The Prairie Pride Film Festival will open with "Heartland Transport," a short film telling the story of 17 same-sex couples who obtain their marriage licenses in Iowa, and "Out in the Silence," a story of the hardships and controversies faced by coming out in small town, rural America.
