Kristen Ridgway Flores, FGFF Founder and Co-Director, said, “in our third year, the Feel Good Film Festival began the process of widening our scope and redefining what it means to “feel good” through the programming of our films and our New Media panel. We really felt we grew this year, as an organization and an event. It was especially gratifying for myself and co-director America Young to have our first female Host (Cheryl Hines) and our first female Feel Good Life Tribute Honoree (Shirley Jones). We feel humbled that this film festival has quickly become a mark-your-calendar event for so many people and we feel like our ‘feel good’ spirit has really got a solid toe-hold in the independent film community now.”

The festival featured 64 films, including 14 features, 39 shorts, and 11 student films. Along with the films offered throughout the festival, highlights included a lively Opening Night intro from Host Cheryl Hines; a New Media panel “Why Web Series Suck” presented by the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce Community Foundation discussing some hot-button issues prevalent in the web community and highlighted by the world premieres of a handful of web series, an outdoor bazaar highlighted by “green” and health-oriented vendors, and nightly after parties in the Egyptian Theatre Courtyard.

The weekend concluded Sunday evening with a Closing Night Awards Gala hosted by comedian and actor Hal Sparks featuring the Feel Good Life Tribute to film and television legend, Shirley Jones. Jones made her way to the podium to accept her honor to a standing ovation and spoke of the need for events such as the Feel Good Film Festival before her husband Marty Ingels joined her at the podium and chided the major networks and news for not being present and covering the event designed to make people “feel good”. Other attendees included Dan Lauria, Josie Davis, John Saxon, Heather Stephens, Marisa Cuevas, April Macie, Eliza Schlesinger, Todd Glass, Nicki Aycox, Dash Mihok, Ray Abruzzo, Frances Fisher, Kathy Kohner Zuckerman, Caryn Richman and Eric Stonestreet (who attended the Opening Night screening of his film FATHER VS SON, while taking time to raise awareness for the Motion Picture & Television Fund).

Dowling expressed his happiness that ROCK SLYDE will enjoy its L.A. premiere as the FGFF Opening Night Gala, saying “Our cast and crew are thrilled to be having our West Coast premiere at the opening night of the Feel Good Film Festival.  We feel the FGFF represents an aspect of independent filmmaking that is largely forgotten – having fun and making people laugh.  We look forward to screening at the historic Egyptian theatre, walking the yellow carpet and having some fun.”

In addition to the Closing Night Tribute honoring Ed Asner, the Gala ceremonies will include the presentation of filmmaker awards. The awards will include prizes with a total value of $7750 ($3000 in goods and services from SLX Rentals and Sales, $3000 in goods and services from Hollywood Rentals, $1500 in film stock from Fuji Film, and a copy of Final Draft Version 8) for the winner of the Best Feel Good Feature Length Film and $3750 ($1500 in goods and services from SLX Rentals and Sales, $1000 in goods and services from Hollywood Rentals, $1000 in film stock from Fuji Film, and a copy of Final Draft Version 8) for the winner of the Best Feel Good Short Film.

Regarding the announcement of FGFF’s second year, Festival Founder and Co-Director Kristen Ridgway says, “The second year of the film festival promises to build on the success and fun all of us enjoyed as we launched FGFF last year. As much as we (obviously) had hoped to have a successful film festival, we were all blown away by the overwhelming turnout and response by the filmmakers and fans alike to our “happy” counter-programming. And ROCK SLYDE, with priceless performances by both Patrick Warburton and Andy Dick, could not be a better choice to start the festival with a bang and a lot of laughs.”
FGFF Co-Director America Young agreed and emphasized the addition of the webisodes section as well as a new “After Hours: Feel Good Enlightened double feature on Friday night as evidence of the growth of the programming this year saying, “Using the concept of ‘feel good’ films or entertainment as a leaping off point, rather than a constraint has been a central focus in our second year. We’re excited by the opportunity to not simply entertain, but to also explore and expand the definition with our audiences”.

FGFF will also screen the winning entry of an online competition co-sponsored by the festival on Indieflix.com.  That film will be chosen from a lineup including Marc Havener’s AND WHAT REMAINS, Marin Rosete’s BASKET BRONX, Patrick Taggart’s CHARLIE APPLEBEE, Jeremy Provost’s DAYS OF BEING WRINKLE FREE, Maurice Moore’s THE SAVIOR, Matt Sklar’s STAYING GOLD: LOVE, SEX AND HAPPINESS IN OUR GOLDEN YEARS, and Conor Britain’s YOU WIN SOME YOU LOSE SOME.
