Short Film: WATCH THE FEET, 6min., USA, Animation Documentary

Directed by Sashko Danylenko, Laura Tufariello
To truly keep our planet healthy, we need to reduce the number of nonrenewable resources we extract and the amount of harmful toxins we release. But it is not always easy to know what is involved in each product. The footprint character LC uses its 5 toes to easily explain the 5 stages of a life cycle that should be considered when making a new purchase. “Watch the Feet” uses an example to show how just considering eco words, may be misleading and gives additional examples on how viewers can reduce their impact.

The information in the video is based on actual extensive Life Cycle Assessments done by governmental environmental agencies. See a few references below. This video is not promoting the use of any one material over another. Our goal is to encourage consumers to “watch their footprints” and strive to keep them as small as possible by remembering all five stages of a products’ life cycle.

A healthy economy is important. We make our living and provide for ourselves and our families with the exchange of goods & services. Watching our footprints can still maintain a prosperous economy for all by shifting our thinking from thoughtless disposable consumption to creating a demand for quality items that have smaller footprints and longer lives.

The irony of this festival is that its goal is to not be around in 5 years time. To eventually not be relevant because there is zero need to have a festival geared for female talent and female stories because the stories presented in Hollywood and around the world are a balanced showcase of the human experience from both sexes. Our goal is to achieve a lot of success and then fold into oblivion simply because there is no need for this festival. This festival was created by the FEEDBACK Film & Writing Festival as a simple reaction to a strong need to showcase female talent from around the world in a more profound way. When putting together the weekly festival, the administration noticed a lack of a female presence in the stories being shown at the festival. A classic example and analogy to the frustration is how the festival noticed that even the smaller roles in a screenplay were written for a man to play. There was zero reason for this in many stories. How a police officer, or a political campaign manager, for example with 3-4 lines in a screenplay was a "HE" character. Why? And these are the screenplays written by the winners! The talented one who have obtained agents and have began/beginning their careers as a writer.
