Initial Distributor

She's in London distributor - Tellotellofilms

tello films produces and distributes innovative, high-quality web series with a lesbian focus.

tello Films believe in telling authentic stories about people whose lives are often ignored or marginalized. tello creates web-series specifically for the lesbian/queer community. This means that lesbian/queer characters are front and center. This means that the stories we tell respect the range and variety inherent in being queer.

Why lesbian stories? Because, frankly, there just aren't enough of them. Sure, sometimes lesbians are thrown in as side characters or show up on 'very special episodes' of your favorite shows, but lesbians and lesbian-specific issues are rarely at the center of mainstream television, movies, or web series. And when they are, frankly...they're watered down.
