Interview: Dillon Birdsall, Award-Winning Documentary Filmmaker
I am so excited to share my latest podcast interview that I released recently with Dillon Birdsall, an award-winning documentary filmmaker. Dillon recently reached out to me to ask me to participate in his upcoming film, “More Than Monogamy,” and I was delighted to meet with him online and learn more about it. This gentleman’s enthusiasm is infectious, to say the least! What a big heart this man has! He shared so incredibly vulnerably in this eye-opening and authentic interview, including why he made his first feature film “V-Card” that touched on his journey from being a virgin to… not being a virgin any longer. Wow, that took guts to tell that story. For his current documentary, “More Than Monogamy,” here is a write-up on that: “Sexuality is complex. Sexuality is diverse. Sexuality is More Than Monogamy, and I want nothing more to tell you why! Designed to be both educational and entertaining, let’s look at why there can be so much more to a relationship than monogamy.”
Dillon Birdsall is an award-winning documentary filmmaker and founder of All-The-Birds Productions. His first feature film “V-Card” won the best documentary feature at Cinekink, the premier film festival for sexuality and adult content.
