Best Summer Ever + Screenability Shorts

It’s the last day of dance camp and the best summer ever for two lovestruck teens, Tony (Rickey Wilson Jr.) and Sage (Shannon DeVido, Difficult People). But now it’s time for them to head home to their utterly different lives. That’s until an unexpected twist lands Sage in Tony’s hometown, where he’s the high school football star and the entire community is counting on him to break a decades-long homecoming curse. Throw in a wicked cheerleader and the scene is set for a showdown! Produced by Zeno Mountain Farm, a Vermont non-profit initiative aimed at making films featuring people with disability, Best Summer Ever has charmed critics at home and is now heading to Sydney!
