Two Cent Lion will be debuting a sneak preview of their new LGBT short film, Is This True Love?. The film is a satirical take on the romantic comedy genre and will be screened at Rule Zero in Stratford on 9 May. 

The story centers around Jeannie Jones, a hopeless romantic on the verge of eviction from her posh London flat. Jeannie meets Amelia Baker, the woman of her dreams, and decides to take inspiration from her favorite romcoms as she pursues a relationship with Amelia. But is this a just a performance or Is This True Love?  

The film was written and co-directed by Kevin Douglas, an American playwright and producer who moved to London to expand Two Cent Lion’s productions. The film’s other co-director is Lauren Dunlop, whom Douglas met through connections at the Raindance Film Festival. The official premiere of Is This True Love? will be held at the same festival in June.

Following the screening, there will be a Q&A session with the film’s cast and crew, hosted by Harvey John, Founder & CEO of The Developing Room. 

Attendees will also be treated to an after-party with live music performed by Josh Adams.  

Two Cent Lion is a queer production house best known for its theatre productions. Although based in the US, their plays have been performed worldwide, including the award-winning romcoms Clink Clink and Yesterday/Today. Is This True Love? marks the company’s debut in the film industry and their first collaboration with international artists in London.
