Coming August 3-5, 2012, we will celebrate the Festival's 5th Anniversary. This buzzing, feel-good event will be arriving with a full schedule of film screenings aimed at both adult and family audiences that highlight positive themes, happy endings, make audiences laugh, and capture the beauty of our world. The Festival, hosted by Laemmle NoHo7 in North Hollywood, is dedicated to provide a platform for filmmakers worldwide with positive views on life.
During the three-day event, 60 films will be shown, including 15 features, 32 shorts, and 13 student and future filmmakers' films. The Festival opens with the signature "Yellow Carpet" Entrances and an Opening Gala Party hosted by a celebrity. The Opening Night feature film, Red Dog, won the coveted Best Film award at the Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts in addition to many other awards.
Throughout the weekend 18 separate film screening blocks will accompany an original screenplay competition, a screenplay panel discussion, a Saturday Evening Gala, and a Closing Night Awards Gala, including a BBoy dance performance, and celebrity host. Additionally, the Feel Good Film Festival will represent eleven countries including the U.S, U.K, Switzerland, Italy, Spain, Australia, Germany, Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, and Israel.
