Interview with Executive Producer Simon Dunmore (Where Love Lives)

WHERE LOVE LIVES played to rave reviews at the July 2021 LGBTQ+ Film Festival.

Simon Dunmore is also the founder of Glitterbox:

What motivated you to make this film?

To show the power that music has to bring people together, to break down barriers and preconceptions. People are the soul of any great occasion. The freedom experienced on a dancefloor is often liberating but the journey can be arduous. Most aspects of dance culture have been covered but we felt that this was a story untold.

How would you describe your short film in two words?

Fabulous acceptance.

What was the biggest obstacle you faced in completing this film?

Inexperience. The nuance of the stories. Completing during the pandemic.

From the idea to the finished product, how long did it take for you to make this short?

Approximately 2 years, it was delayed due to COVID. The pandemic has further highlighted the importance of community on the dancefloor, so we may extend the documentary to cover people re-uniting on the dancefloor. It will be an emotional coming together.

What is next for you? A new film?

Back to promoting fabulousness and unity through music and dance.
