FAMILY Festival Testimonial – September 23 2018

Audrey Arkins

This was BY FAR our best Festival experience. The US venue is Regal Cinemas in DTLA at LA Live/Staples center. Great seats, great screens, great food with beer/wine. Accepted films get at least 20!!! comped tix and additional guests may reserve for free or by donation. Our short, American Boy, won Best Film for this event but all films got an edited compilation of audience feedback (here’s ours: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=69lHptHCrjE ). We got excellent web coverage from the festival before and after. This is truly an outstanding Festival. I haven’t reviewed others because I try not to be negative, but they were useless in comparison. This festival made up for all of that. I originally applied because of the term “family” in the title. My film is about kids, but gang murder, so not exactly family fare either. But I hadn’t been able to bring the cast and their friends to other festivals because of R-rated content which concerned their parents. This festival split the program so the kids could leave at the intermission.

In the series’ premiere, Mike and Gloria plan a surprise party to celebrate Archie and Edith’s 22nd anniversary. But it quickly turns into a shouting match between conservative Archie and the liberal “Meathead” on virtually every topic.
