The EXPERIMENTAL/ANIMATION DECEMBER 2017 FEEDBACK Film Festival gave our audiences simply the best of short movies from this community.

The theme of the festival was “STRUGGLE”.

Every film showcased was about a character(s) simply struggling in life in some sort of way. .

Showcasing the best 13 Experimental and Animation Short Films of 2017 was a terrific way to end the year 2017.

This is a festival without its controversy as some films pushed the limits of what is appropriate to screen – and perhaps 100% of our audience didn’t appreciate certain films as it didn’t fit into their idealogy. In my subjective opinion, this is what the Experimental night is all about. Stretch the boundaries of storytelling and film execution while still engaging and making the audience feel.

That said, there were a couple of films that the FEEDBACK Film Festival committee wanted us to show that I simply could not. They pushed things a bit TOO far.

I always like to imagine any film we program to see how it will play 10 years from now from a 2027 audience. Of course I can not predict the future, but sometimes you can see the patterns of convention and what is appropriate. So some films that we screen today might not stand the test of time in 10 years. So it’s my job to make sure we don’t screen a film that is a little cringe worthy in the future.

.

Kierston Drier (who also moderated the event) was the main programmer for the DECEMBER 2017 Festival. She has worked for WILDsound for the last 2 years and is the driving force for future FEEDBACK Film Festival events.

You always know you had a great festival when all the films receive multiple votes for BEST FILM of the night from the audience – which was the case for all 13 films presented at this festival.

We are so proud of this festival. We can’t wait for 2018.

See you at the festivals.
