ILICFF 2018 Winning Short Films Made By and For Kids Have Positive and Uplifting Themes
"Thank you so much for bringing the event to our school," said OLV principal, Pastor as well as teachers. All classes, grade Kindergarten through the 8th attended the private screening. After seeing films from each country the school had the kids do activities that originated from those countries – thereby turning the ILICFF into a learning experience.
The ILICFF was hosted by radio personally Doresa Harvey. The OLV students selected the winners for the "Best Film Made BY Kids" and "Best Film Made FOR Kids" through clapping and cheering. The ILICFF founder award winning actor/filmmaker Anthony Michael Hobbs (One Nation, Naga Pixie and One Nation) selected the "Film Festival Choice" and the founder of the "Uplifting Minds II" entertainment conference Eunice Moseley (www.ThePulseofEntertainment.com) selected the "Most Uplifting Film" award.
Winners include "Tough Guy" by Monika Dalman (Canada) for "Best Film Made BY Kids"; Sawubona (I See You)" by Lungelo Kuzwayo (South Africa) for "Best Film Made FOR Kids"; "You Can Not Play With Us" by Jason Rhein (USA) for "Film Festival Choice", and "Change for Chimps" by Lisa Mann (Canada) for "Most Uplifting Films." All have inspiring themes - "Tough Guy" is about a bully who learns to get along from a different kind of bully, "Sawubona" is about two children who are not deterred by what's seen on the outside of a person but by the heart, "You Cant Play With Us" is about children learning to play with people different from themselves, and "Change for Chimps" is about a child that takes her passion for chimps and turned it into her cause to change the plight of the caged chimps.
ILICFF founder Anthony Michael Hobbs is also an award winning actor who has garnered six awards from Global Stars Network for his acting skills, represented PBS at the 2013 Emmy Awards for his role as a young Frederick Douglass in their Special Mini-Series "The American Experience: The Abolitionist"
