    Great piece, I love romantic docs! You could also consider my short “xoxosms” about two teens who fall in love on Facebook, Skype and gchat. It’s very sweet (short and sweet!). It was also recently featured on the BBC Radio4 “Digital Human Series: Crush”. More about it:

    Check out Seeking Asian Female by Debbie Lum.  What starts out to be a film about “yellow fever” turns into a wonderful love story half way through.

    • Tom Roston

      Well, alright! I went to school with Debbie, so I look forward to checking out SAF.

  • David Van Taylor

    I highly recommend AMATO by Steve Ives, about the couple behind NYC’s smallest opera house.
