Director Biography – Ella Warner

Img 1981

I am a 12 year old student film maker, I go to Millikan Middle school and I am in the Cinematic Arts Academy. This film is special to me because my grandmother is suffering from slight memory loss, and I got to take her reality and make it into an art for many people to see. I also have been taking piano for eight years and I enjoy composing to my own short films.

 

Director Statement

 

I believe we have film to send out a powerful message to people. I make films to send the message. I want people to finish my film with emotion, and a thought that can help the world. I am an animal advocate, and went to a school with inclusion called CHIME, where special needs kids work in the same classroom.

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.

– Matthew Toffolo
