New York's Newfest has announced that On The Downlow won the prize for Best U.S.A. Narrative Feature Film. The film was sponsored by The New York Times and co-presented by The New York International Latino Film Festival.

Directed by Tadeo Garcia, written by Roger Domian, filmed in Chicago's Little Village and Pilsen, with all Chicago cast, On The Downlow—the movie, is raising eyebrows across the country. 

As Terry Amour of the Chicago Tribune put it... 'On The Downlow will get people talking.'  .... and they are! Bill Stamets of the Chicago Sun-times calls it, 'A Shakespearan, Mean Streets.'

After having its preview screening at Reeling in Chicago and its world premiere in Turino Italy, On The Downlow has been exhibited now in four states, and on its way to San Francisco, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, and Washington, D.C., and Texas. Internationally Australia, Spain, Germany and South Africa will experience On The Downlow.

Currently the film has a limited release in Chicago at The International Latino Cinematheque at the ICE Theaters, 62nd and Western. Call 773-778-7490 to see if it's been extended again. On The Downlow is in English and Spanish and subtitled it both languages. See
