WATCH Audience FEEDBACK

An excited audience member came up to me minutes after August 2016 Film Festival completed. She told me that she's been to at least two dozen events and this lineup was easily the best showcased of shorts we've ever screened.

I have to agree with her. It was an amazing lineup of short films from all over the world. This was the first time in over 50 festival events that every single film received at least 3 votes from the audience for "Best Film" of the night. Most times there are 1-3 films in the running for best film. This month all 13 films easily could have been the winner of "Best Film".

The theme of the Family/Animation Festival was "Death". Strange as that sounds considering the films were geared towards an "all ages" audience, but death came into the plot and framework of every film presented.

The first half Family program showcased films about the loss of a family member and how they can still give you so much love and support despite the fact that they are no longer alive.

The 2nd half showcased 10 animation short films with different techniques and styles. There was traditional animation, vector based, CGI/computer animation, motion graphics animation, Claymation, stop-motion animation, cut-out animation, and even a black & white/film noir animation.

It's amazing what people are doing out there from every corner of the globe. There are so many amazing short films out there and the #1 goal of this festival is to present them to the world. This was the first time we ever alloted an entire 2nd half of our festival for Animation Films. And this definitely will not be the last.

The August 2016 Festival was a major success. There wasn't an empty seat in the cinema and the audience was very engaged during the feedback portion of the festival. Click the posters, learn about the films, and watch the Audience Feedback Videos.
