Festival Details

As Covid has had an impact on cinemas and events around the world, we did not produce a festival in 2020. We did something a little different for 2021.

We decided to have winners from the past several years participate in an All Stars Edition of the festival, judged by recent participants on our Spoiler Alert Radio film interview show, like previous festivals.

However, there were no live screenings for general audiences for this year. This was a virtual experience and seen exclusively by Jury members.

Jury Awards Announced!

Our awards selection process is complete! A panel of film industry professionals, previously interviewed on Spoiler Alert Radio, reviewed the 22 films in the program.

Jury Prize France

The jury selected La petite casserole d'Anatole (Anatole's Little Saucepan), by French animator/director Eric Montchaud, produced by JPL Films. Based on the book from children's author Isabelle Carrier, the stop-motion animated film uses an unusual metaphor to tell the story of a young boy's struggle for acceptance.

Award winners receive commissioned custom art objects created by past festival award winners.
