The THEME of the May 2010 Film Festival was ENCOUNTERS OF CHANGE. Each film presented stories about characters encountering an outside force or person that effects their present being.
Movies showcased were about a young girl and her obsession with music and the piano in THE FIRST CONCERT. The animation HOMELAND where a mother type of figure helps a hand grow into a "bigger" person (AUDIENCE CHOICE FOR BEST FILM). The conflicts of two brothers and the game of marbles in THE MAN WITH ALL THE MARBLES. An old man influencing the lives of others with a magic box in TELEFONE. The action film THE SEER when a man learns to deal with his higher calling. A day in the life of a lonely teacher in WORM. Love at first sight in reverse in REWIND MY LOVE. And the time travel on a TV screen movie REMOTE.
It was another mixed bag of films from all over the world with all sorts of budgets, shooting formats, genres and moods.
After 35 festival nights using the FEEDBACK session, these nights continue to be unique and different every single time. No event has ever been the same.
Mysterious gift boxes containing rotary telephones begin appearing around two lonely individuals. However, the increasing number of calls overwhelms a maniacal switchboard operator and ultimate destruction is never far away.
