Since its prestigious debut as the opening night film of the Berlin Film Festival’s Panorama section (where it went on to win the juried Teddy Award), Tomboy has won numerous awards including “Best Feature Film” at the 2011 Torino International Gay & Lesbian Film Festival, the “Audience Award” for Best Feature at the 2011 San Francisco International Lesbian & Gay Film Festival, and the “Jury Prize” for Best Feature at the 2011 Philadelphia International Gay & Lesbian Film Festival.

Tomboy tells the story of 10-year-old Laure (played by the amazing Zoe Heran) who moves to the suburbs and decides to pass as a boy amongst the pack of neighborhood kids. As “Mikael” she catches the attention of leader of the pack Lisa, who becomes smitten with her. Finding resourceful ways to hide her true self, Laure takes advantage of her new identity, as if the end of the summer would never reveal her unsettling secret.
