The FAMILY SEPTEMBER 2017 FEEDBACK Film Festival was truly a great success.

The theme of the festival was “CYCLE OF LIFE”.

Every film showcased was about the process of life. We are born. We live. We pass on.

NOTE: This was a showcase of the best FAMILY films from around the world.

This was a two part night. The first half was the best of live action shorts. And the 2nd half was the best of animation shorts.

This was an amazing night. One of the best of our 2017 season. When you showcase 10 films and every single film gets a vote from the audience for “BEST FILM”, you know you have a special night. This was a night where every single film was a worthy winner.

The full house crowd of 165 people didn’t say one negative comment in the entire moderation. I do not think that has ever happened in our history of over 100 events. People were on a trip of positivity because all of the films showcased were so dynamic.

When you make a short film, especially an animation film, most times it takes years to complete from the inception to completion. So it just gives me a fuzzy feeling inside to witness a festival like this. It was a perfect night.

Big thanks to the moderator of the evening, Kierston Drier, for her amazing job.

See you at the festivals in 2017.

PEPITA & MAX Short Film – Sept. 2017 FAMILY FEEDBACK Film Festival

PEPITA & MAX, 6min, Family/Animation 
Directed by Rahel Ilona Eisenring

Pepita and Max have all sorts of adventures. Monsieur Raf, Max’ toy giraffe, is always with them. When Max loses Monsieur Raf while hiking, the little boy can’t find sleep. Not even the Alpsegen, the lullaby of the mountains, which is meant to protect animals and people on the alp, helps. The peculiar tradition gives Pepita an idea: what works for Swiss alp-cows could also save a giraffe through the night.
