Pariselli graduateed from York University's Film Production program in 2009 and was immediately picked up by the international festival circuit where his short After was screened in the most important film festivals around the world and won him the best short at the 2011 Sicilia Queer Film Fest. 2013's Pigeon Hole pokes fun at contemporary gay culture and the ever evolving world of online hook-ups and hook up apps. Namung the many subcategories that seem to be constantly created within the gay male community, the film pokes fun at the way that internet enabled hookups constantly redefines and needs to lable body types such as bear, twink, otters, cubs etc. A man lights a match and burns down a birdhouse where, in each pigeon hole the name of a gay type is written. burning down what cruising had become in the gay world, a bunch of labels where we are pigeonholed forever.
