Married and Counting Wins Two Awards in Rhode Island

Pat Dwyer and Stephen Mosher at RIIFF
On Saturday, Married and Counting premiered at the Rhode Island International Film Festival. In the post-screening Q&A, eight-time groom Pat Dwyer said he had two hopes for the movie: that it could help people on the fence on same-sex marriage see that "our love is like your love, and we come in peace," and that it could send a positive message to young people.

The film seems to have reached both goals for Rhode Island jurors. Married and Counting won the Ambassador Award for promoting "communication, education, and cultural understanding," and the Youth Jury Award for Best Feature.

We are honored by the awards, and by being included in such a wonderful festival.
