The scenes shot on the streets for the gay pride parade were shot at the actual annual Toronto Gay Pride parade, which is the largest annual gay pride celebration in North America, drawing between 500,000 and 750,000 people each year, and which also allows full nudity for the parade participants, just as portrayed in the movie.

The Baby Formula restores my faith in the mockumentary. I love this film!
Athena & Lilith are determined to have babies...together...or should I say...each other's.
Director Alison Reid has crafted some outrageously humorous scenes from the film's concept AND she has managed to bring some genuinely heartfelt and heartbreaking moments to the screen with this hugely successful first feature film from what promises to be a director to watch.
Reid has also quite cleverly decided to play a bit of hide-and-seek with the audience, seeding just enough doubt about what's actually taking place, to keep the audience interested and engaged. It's a keen wink to the making of documentaries in a time when it seems everyone is waiting to grab hold of their 15 minutes of fame, and it's becoming increasingly difficult to separate reality TV from it's scripted counterpart.
The Baby Formula is a sly, intelligent comedy that will keep you laughing till the bitter end.
I'm in love with this genre again!
