WILDsound FEEDBACK TORONTO FILM FESTIVAL
Highlights from the Thursday December 29, 2016 event.
The FAMILY/ANIMATION DECEMBER 2016 FEEDBACK Film Festival was a terrific way to wrap of the successful year we had.
SEE over 300+ GENRES from STORIES from the FILM and WRITING FESTIVAL
The theme of the festival was "Loss".
Every films was about someone losing someone or something and their desire to get it back to make them whole again.
NOTE: This was our 2nd Family/Animation festival event. We planned on doing this only once, but because of the huge success we have decided to come back every 3-4 months. The 2nd time out was another great success.
These festivals are always so much fun because their are always lot of kids in the audience. If you watch the feedback videos, you'll see a lot of kids participating too, as they had a lot of very insightful things to say. It's always so interesting to hear a kids point of view on any film because they always say things that you never thought of before.
At the end of the night gave the "State of the Festival" speech summing up our terrific 2016 year. The Highlights are:
- 131 short films screened.
- 19 film festivals
- 32 countries showcased.

I was quite the year. In 2017, we have 20 Toronto Film Festivals scheduled, 3 Los Angeles Festivals, 2 New York Festivals, and 30 screenplay readings scheduled. Overall, we have 55 festival events scheduled, averaging over 1 per week.
