Notes/Trivia:
  • George Northy's screenplay was a finalist for both Outfest's Screenwriting Lab and NewFest's NewDraft Screenplay Contest. Actress Guinevere Turner, a judge in the Outfest lab, referred the script to director Darren Stein.
  • Casting Call: Raven SymonĂ©.
  • The film received an R rating from the MPAA for "sexual references". Director Darren Stein responded to the rating by saying, "I always thought of G.B.F. as a PG-13 movie, but we were given an R for "Sexual References" while not having a single F-bomb, hint of nudity or violence in the film. Perhaps the ratings box should more accurately read "For Homosexual References" or "Too Many Scenes of Gay Teens Kissing." I look forward to a world where queer teens can express their humor and desire in a sweet, fun teen film that doesn't get tagged with a cautionary R."
