Announcing the 2012-2013 Robert Giard Fellowship Winner

In partnership with The Center for Lesbian and Gay Studies (CLAGS) at City University of New York, the Robert Giard Foundation is proud to announce this year's winner of the 2012-2013 Robert Giard Fellowship. The $7,500 award goes to filmmaker Cary T. Cronenwett to will help him complete a 20-minute film/personal essay centered on his relationship with close friend and creative partner Flo McGarrell.
“A non-traditional love story, Go With Flo tells the story of Flo’s life-long exploration of his transgender identity through his creative work,” says Cronenwett. “The Robert Giard Foundation Fellowship will enable me to complete post-production on Go With Flo to be released alongside Kathy Goes to Haiti, our final film together.”
“Cary is a fascinating and articulate man with a great passion for his work,” says Carl Sylvestre, president of The Robert Giard Foundation. “We were impressed by his thoughtful, process-oriented approach to making Go With Flo, and are eager to support his work with the largest fellowship devoted to art centered on human sexuality, gender, and issues of LGBTQ identity."
