The pangs of first love are given a fresh spin in this first feature from director Kerem Sanga. Anne (played by Dylan Gelula from Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt) is your typical angst ridden teen misfit, who is more interested in bike riding and hanging with best friend Cliff, than fitting in with her cliquey classmates. Her polar opposite is the athletic and popular Sasha who Anne becomes smitten with when she photographs her for the school yearbook.

When the crush is surprisingly reciprocated the two girls' wildly different worlds implode. Told with an original flair that makes great use of the way teens communicate through digital means, First Girl I Loved is a bold addition to the queer coming out canon.
