LITTLE VIOLET BLOSSOMS, THE
PRIYANKA TANWAR
Series: FAITH-BASED FEATURE, AGES 13 - 18
Description - St. Claudine Thevenet is a name that epitomizes love, sacrifice and compassion. The founder of the Religious of Jesus and Mary (1818), Claudine was born in a modest French family as the second of seven children. The execution of her two brothers during the French Revolution was the turning point in Claudine's life. It was from this point on that she decided to devote her life to the service of others. The Little Violet Blossoms is a humble attempt to uphold and honour the values and teachings of St. Claudine Thevenet that are relevant even today. The story of our film juxtaposes St. Claudine's life during the French Revolution with the life of our protagonist, 14-year-old Glady Sequeira in today's times. As Glady is confronted with the violent murder of her parents, she not only has to cope with this tragic loss, but she must also identify the culprit responsible for her parents' murder. Through Glady's journey of dealing with this conflict, she is reminded of various teachings of St. Claudine Thevenet. Eventually, Glady is able to let go of the hurt and anguish as she embraces the most valuable lesson St. Claudine imparted through her own life, that of unconditional love and forgiveness.

ROBERT COX
Series: SCREENPLAY, AGES 9-18
Description - Carl is an eleven year old with serious health problems. He has a brain tumor that he is being treated for, but the loss of hair and the fear the other children in his class have of him has made his life even more miserable. The constant teasing and shunning he receives makes him dread going to school. His mother and he have moved in with his grandfather when his Carl's own father deserts them, after telling his wife and son that he can't deal with the strain of caring for a sick child. At his chemo treatment, he meets Evan, a boy about his age who has leukemia and is also undergoing chemo. They begin a friendship that make their illnesses easier to bear and makes even the problems Carl has had in school easier to take. Evan's friendship with Carl has a benefit as well. Carl, with a little help from his grandfather, coaxes Michael, Evan's father, into allowing Evan to go trick or treating., something he has never done. This clears the way for a relaxing of the over protectiveness Michael has shown in the past. Carl's grandfather passes away, and soon afterward, a door begins to appear in Carl's room, pushing out of the wall, a door only he is able to see. Carl's grandfather spoke earlier to him of how dying was like opening a door between one room and another and Carl is convinced that his grandfather is waiting for him on the other side of that door, but there is also the fear that it is only a manifestation of his illness. As Carl's health declines, Evan, who is also losing the struggle with his own illness, confesses to Carl that since he has only his father for family, that when he dies there will be no one waiting for him and that that the thought of being alone frightens him. Carl promises that he will not leave Evan alone, calming his friend's fears. Seeing that the door is fully formed and thinking that he doesn't have much time left, Carl begs his mother for a favor; a drive around town to look at the Christmas lights. Michael, who has become an important part of the family, bundles Carl up and carries him to the car. The four of them drive around, looking at the lights, Evan excited by the sights and Carl knowing that he may be for seeing them for the last time. Then, late one night, the door opens.

MICHAEL W. DRIESCH
Series: FOREIGN FEATURE, AGES 8-15
Description - Nine-year-old Max Topas wakes up much too late one morning and finds that his parents and sister have vanished without a trace. Monsieur Quidam, a peculiar stranger, appears just at that moment, claiming to have cast a spell on the family, that they were about to embark on a trip around the world from which they would never return and that they would have no memory of Max at all. There was only one way to stop all this: within just two hours, Max must find the 'Book of the Crystal Children' for Monsieur Quidam. The only clue provided by the mysterious Quidam is the business card of Madame Edda, a lady who would help Max make sense of all this and be able to point him towards finding the book. From Madame Edda, Max learns that he is a so-called 'Crystal Child' with the ability to enter a special 'Dreamland'. And so begins a spectacular search for the book that will take Max, during the course of a couple of hours, into the dream world and around the world.
