Share Article

Canadian Film and Television Production Association has voted Fatherhood Dreams one of the top five Canadian documentaries of 2008. In this heartfelt documentary four gay men explore different options to attain their Fatherhood Dreams - Randy and Drew turn to adoption, Stephen co-parents his two daughters with a lesbian couple, and Scott prepares for the arrival of his twins through surrogacy.

We're thrilled to be nominated. It's a wonderful acknowledgment of the importance of getting gay parenthood stories out into the public sphere.

From the country that brought about the legalization of same-sex marriage comes this insider look into gay parenting and the paths taken by three gay men to achieve their Fatherhood Dreams (http://www.fatherhooddreams.com) - through Adoption, Co-Parenting, and Surrogacy. Not only is the Best Documentary nomination by the Canadian Film and Television Production Association a great honor for the producers of the film, but it also shows great respect for the rights of the LGBT community as well as great pride in all gay and lesbian dads and moms out there.

Prejudice is fueled by ignorance and fear of the unknown. Fatherhood Dreams takes viewers on an intimate journey through the daily lives of these men, their children and their extended families. After getting to know these parents and the people who love them, it would be hard to deny them the right to marry or to parent a child. Viewing this film is the best learning tool to any proponent of California's Proposition 8.

Julia Ivanova, Director and Executive Producer, said: "We're thrilled to be nominated. It's a wonderful acknowledgment of the importance of getting gay parenthood stories out into the public sphere."
