Our guest speaker this year has a special place in our hearts! Alex Bohs won the Best Film award in the 3rd Annual Phantoscope High School Film Festival with his film, “Love.” Born in Battle Ground Indiana, Alex attended William Henry Harrison High School and earned his BA in directing from Columbia College Chicago. Alex is now a Los Angeles-based filmmaker. As an editor, he has helped bring to life numerous projects that convey what it’s like to be queer. Whether it be through first-hand recollection with the inter-generational documentary project “Conversations with Gay Elders,” episodically breaking down the Iranian queer and trans communiety with the doc-series “Thirst For Love,” or helping weave the past into the present through uncovered letters written by 1950s New York City drag queens in the upcoming feature documentary, “P.S. Burn This Letter, Please” (accepted into the 2020 Tribecca Film Festival), Alex has committed, through cinematography, editing and directing, to telling the rich stories of the LGBTQ+ community that have so often been overlooked.
