What we and especially our audience get really excited about? Films that show kids and teenagers as the smart, dorky, curious, political, sensitive, funny and wise people they are. Stories and films that encourage empathy and confidence, address serious topics in exciting and lively ways, that offer perspectives and ways forward. Films that make you laugh and feel (without being unbearably corny). Quiet films, crazy films! Films with animal protagonists! Environmental films! Documentaries! Experiments! Visual feasts! Hilarious slapstick! Films from all over the world! Nothing generic! Bring it on!
