Everything is Connected...
Specializing in Cross Platform Storytelling that empowers audiences and promotes heightened thought and socio-political rebellion. We champion Films, Series, Digital Media, Music and Comedy that not only entertains, but questions and provokes.
Forrest Entertainment is dedicated to producing works that go beyond the boundaries of traditional Film, Television, Theater and Comedy. By exploring creation, free from discrimination, and without the confines of the usual censorship, Forrest Entertainment seeks to create commercially viable entertainment with substance, and unite mainstream audiences with the powerful stories of the often overlooked.
We are especially interested in content by and for women and LGBTQ persons of color.
//Actually, I just got tired of apologizing. Apologizing for my vision, my intellect, my ambition, my sexuality, my color... All of it. So I stopped, and that changed everything. Now, I let my work speak for itself. Let people see it and feel whatever they want, even if it's rage. Instead of watering it down and falling into this trap nowadays that looks progressive, but really is all pretty please and 'Do Not Disturb' with just enough backbone not to fall over but not enough to change anything.// -From FreeForrest
