Series: FOREIGN SHORT, AGES 2-7
Description - On a snow-covered Christmas Eve, Little Nutbrown Hare and his friends stumble across a little Brown Bear who is lost. Determined to return their young friend back to his mother in time for Christmas, the friends venture bravely into the unknown woods. Through this epic journey we are reminded that the greatest gift of Christmas is being with the ones you love.
KIDS FIRST!® Adult Jurors say - I thoroughly enjoyed this short film and highly recommend it for kids and families. This is a heartwarming tale about Little Nutbrown Hare who wanders outside one night when he can't sleep and discovers a rare, all white fawn dancing in the snow. He knows all white fawns are rare and when he talks to her she runs away. Through lots of escapades Little Nutbrown Hare finally is able to convince his forest friends the fawn is real and able to befriend the white fawn. The characters are interesting and charming. A field mouse and a squirrel friends are all friends with Little Nutbrown Hare and they interact with each other in the most loving way. I felt sorry for Little Nutbrown Hare when no one believes that he had seen the white fawn. Eventually the truth comes out and they finally see her and believe Little Nutbrown Hare. The morale of this story is about love. The love between Little Nutbrown Hare and his dad, the love of friends and possibility of the love of strangers. The negative behaviors shown are about doubt, but that disappears over time. I particularly enjoyed seeing the field mouse trying to protect Little Nutbrown Hare by making a white fawn out of snow. He tries to protect his friend's honor in doing so. The educational and social elements that make this film valuable emphasize the various ways that you can show someone how you love them. Adults often tell children that they love them and they can hear it in this story in a way they can relate to. The production values are outstanding, from the animation to the voice over talent to the background music. The images look like watercolors brought to life. I love them! I recommend this for ages 2 to 7 and give it 5 out of 5 stars. It uses vocabulary and ideas which little children can understand and enjoy. Questioning, probing and problem-solving are developed in a manner suitable for the target age. It is very enjoyable and charming. If you have a festival for preschool and early elementary kids, this will fit right in. Reviewed by Tina B., KIDS FIRST! Adult Juror.
KIDS FIRST!® Kid Jurors say - This film is based on the British book series written by Sam McBratney and illustrated by Anita Jeram, published in 1994 in the UK and in 1995 in the US. The book was a ALA Notable Children's book and sold over 28 million copies worldwide!

Now, I have an adorable special guest who helped review the film with me, Little Field Mouse. I really love this film because it captures the Christmas spirit by showing us all the characters telling us what they think about Christmas. They show us that Christmas really means family. It's really about spending time with your family, not about giving gifts or any of that stuff. It's spending time with your Mom and Dad and anyone else you love. That's what I really respect about the film.

I really do cherish the story and also the animation in this film which is true to the original illustrations in the book. It really captures the adventures of Little Nutbrown Hare and his adventures. The show is produced by SLR Productions Australia (Suzanne Ryan) and Scrawl Studios and stars the voice of Ky Baldwin. They really capture all the original pictures from the book which look just like watercolors. I love them. It looks like a beautiful story that was drawn by a little kid. I really love that! The animation is something that everyone will truly enjoy.

I really love the characters in the story, especially my friend Little Field Mouse. Of course Little Nutbrown Hare is my favorite character. He's absolutely adorable and at the same time, kind and thoughtful. Just his love for everything around him makes me love him more. He's kind of fun and silly, but really he is just adorable.

The film is really suitable for preschoolers but also older kids, up to age 8 will enjoy this because of all the fun and silly stories. I even think tween and teens will like this show. Of course, adults can enjoy this as well and it makes a great show for families to enjoy during the holiday season. I definitely give this 5 out of 5 Magnificent Stars. It is available now on DVD so, look for it!

Director - Gerardo Paz 6a637c2136 headshot Ratings Rate ProjectThis project has not yet been rated. Notes Ranny Levy on October 18, 2018 � Shared with Submitter This animated 2D short is perfect for the KIDS FIRST! Film Festivals. In Spanish, with English sub-titles, it delivers a fun story with an important message about dishonesty, honesty and forgiveness. I love the line, "someone who steals loses his tranquility." The characters are adorable. The thief, a monkey, didn't intend to steal, He was attracted to the object and couldn't help himself. But, he's sorry, confesses and promises to never do it again. This is well produced with lovely animation, bright colors and a good message. We learn that it takes courage to confess, that we all make mistakes and that the most important thing is to learn from them. The music is catchy and reiterates the theme of the show at the end. I can see kids singing the song along with it, or humming it afterwards. I recommend this for ages 2 to 5 and give it 3.5 out of 5 stars. You should know that sometimes the sub-titles are a bit off, so be prepared for that. Reviewed by Julie S., KIDS FIRST! Adult Juror To submitter: Congratulations!

Series: INDIE SHORT, AGES 8-18
Description - Everywhere is walking distance if you have the time - Steven Wright 'Last mile' has been used to describe the difficulty in getting people from transportation hubs like railway stations, bus depots, and ferry slips, to their final destination Three colorful Bostonians offer their solutions to the "last mile" commuter challenge. Employing spirited footage, stimulating interviews and person-on-the-street reactions, they spur us to rethink urban transportation. They examine pros, cons and the possible future of using their favorite vehicles. They explore the benefits and consequences of urban growth and increasing traffic. The film encourages audiences to think about how they can make their cities and towns a better place. While pondering alternative modes of transport on the horizon, viewers may ask: Are these "last milers" insightful visionaries, wicked agitators or exciting daredevils? HOW WE ROLL is a film with consciousness and meaning, in an enjoyable package.

0
Series: SCREENPLAY, AGES 12-18
Description - Milton Riggles, age 14, nerd, loser, president of the Frog Club becomes involved in a life and death situation when his science teacher and mentor disappears and weird sightings of humanoid frogs jumping around the neighborhood. Milton and his side-kick Jenny begin to focus on the Frogspawn Laboratory Industry. When our undaunted duo begin their investigation they encounter the evil Doctor Prince, head of Research and Experimentation at the Frogspawn Corporation headquarters. A villain ready to cash in on gene splicing with a miracle drug that can change the course of human evolution and the coming of global warming. Now Milton and Jenny are in a nail-biting situation to stop the sinister Doctor Prince from turning the world into evil huphibians. Sometimes evolution makes a giant leap, sometimes it just takes a hop.
KIDS FIRST!® Adult Jurors say - A definite yes. This is an interesting and engaging story and the characters are a very strong part of the screenplay. There are a couple of subtle messages for teens about not judging others too quickly and getting to know them, but most of its value is entertainment. The story flows well and there is conflict and resolution with a good ending. It is a bit predictable, but I think it would be well received by teenagers. (mine enjoyed the story) Reviewed by Denise B., KIDS FIRST! Juror. Recommended for ages 12 to 18. Ranked 4 out of 5 stars.

JOSSELIN CHARIER
Series: FOREIGN ANIMATED SHORT, AGES 6-12
Description - As soon as the Forest Ranger is away, GRIZZY feels it's only natural that the Ranger Station becomes his territory. And no other animal dares to contest this privilege. Except the LEMMINGS! They are small, but there are a lot of them - and they want their share of the Eldorado! Grizzy finds two identical vases that are actually communicating vessels in a Native American Indian chest. If he sticks his hand in one, it comes out the other, regardless of the distance between them. This should satisfy Grizzy's natural lazy streak, unless the Lemmings realize the incredible games they could play with the magic vases. by Victor Moulin, graduate of Supinfocom in France.

BLUE TOES
ISOBELLA ANTELIS
Series: STUDENT FILMS 8-16
Description - Blue Toes is a story that fights to break the rules of gender normative behavior between kids. It follows a young boy named Mickey, who is teased for liking things boys usually don't like. In the beginning we establish that Mickey does not have many friends, and is often alone. The one place where he feels accepted is afterschool with his swim team. He is one of the best swimmers on the team and feels a part of the group. Mickey also has an older sister that helps him express himself whether it be through trying different kinds of makeup, or throwing on an old dress of hers. The point of the story is to show that kids should be accepted, no matter what their interests are, regardless of their gender.
