New York-based non-profit NewFest wil recognise the director with the third annual NewFest Visionary Award at its annual Lgbt jamboree that runs from July 24-29.

“Without community events like NewFest, I don’t think we’d have a queer cinema in America. If ‘visionary’ means a belief in the continued future and importance of Lgbt cinema, I’m deeply honoured to accept.”

Sachs’ credits include Forty Shades Of Blue and Keep The Lights On. Spc will release Love Is Strange starring John Lithgow and Alfred Molina on August 22.
