PRODUCTION NOTES Filming in a remote community is not without its challenges Resources are limited and when something goes wrong one has to get creative I was hired onto this project as a one person band While I m sure that watching me juggle equipment and wrangle kids for interviews had its amusements the real difficulty came when a memory card or hard drive broke and I had to miss precious time with the kids to make the 15O mile drive to the nearest Walmart Two weeks into the three week production my computer crashed The nearest Mao store is in Colorado Springs a four hour drive away I missed two days with the cast but when I returned to film it felt like two years The amount of hard work and growth they had accomplished over 48 hours was stunning and humbling I will never know what gems I could have captured during that gap but it was at that moment that I was reminded of what accelerated growth this program can offer to young people I have always been told that it can be a nightmare to work with children on set Every young person I worked with on KID Show showed a level of poise respect articulation and intelligence that was one of the most humbling experiences of my life During the three weeks of the KID Show program these young thespians work to the bone They are in rehearsal from 8am 6pm daily and have even longer hours than that during tech week which can be a lot for an eight year old Even so every kid that I chose to follow for the documentary went out of their way to make my job easier taking time out of their lunch hour to talk to me to sit down and think about the questions I gave them in advance to provide me with a clear answer These little graces are such a rarity among adults and I found myself continually taking notes from them on how to behave in this world

WHO HAS BEEN YOUR BIGGEST INSPIRATION AND WHO HAS BEEN YOUR BIGGEST SUPPORTER When I was younger I was watching a lot of theater in Israel and loved a wonderful stage Israeli actress called Gila Almagor When I started to watch film I fell in love with the work of Julia Roberts and Meryl Strip I watched them in every possible film Pretty woman is probably one of my favorite film I can watch over and over again My biggest supporters were two of my teachers in college They made me feel like my work was solid and respected But also pushed me to work hard and stretch beyond my comfort zone in order to tap into my inner emotional world They saw my potential and helped me grow HOW DID YOU DISCOVER PRODUCING AND WHEN DID YOU KNOW YOU WERE HOOKED I feel like I was always a producer at heart I actually produced our talent show at junior high and high school and our graduation recitals But producing movies and theater started during my third year of college where I produced my first short in order to get my SAG card and have a reel as an actor It was liberating to know I ws able to make things happen for myself as a preform and I don t have to wait for things to happen I never had real patience for waiting YOU VE WRTTEN AND AMAZING BOOK OF POETRY CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT IT Thank you It was a labor of love and a huge practice in vulnerability I never thought I will become a poet especially not in English but that is the beauty of life You get to surprise and stretch yourself to new places when you follow your heart I released the book last December and its called Whispers From The Moon The moon which represents the female energy has a special place in my heart I poured my soul into it and I get really excited to hear feedback from people that connect to the poems

Dear AOF Megafest Family The Power of our voices combined is an unstoppable force I believe in my heart that we as filmmakers are light bringers and that our impact if utilized can be more effective than politics Since I will be introducing my own Festival this year the Anabelle Munro presents The Most Important Films International Film Festival 2019 I would like to take the opportunity to remind us all of this power that we hold within this most exciting and cutting edge business We are first row not peanut gallery We are the poets and thinkers the painters and singers and if we honor our craft by keeping the process sacred and purpose driven we can combine the best of all arts in one and share it with millions we can grab our fellow Humans by their hearts and allow them to deeply feel to experience or at least envision a re awakening of their senses dreams and potential W hat a service we can offer The purpose of my festival is to change the attention from the technical pieces like camera and acting to the sacredness of story telling within the festival circuit a brilliant spring board and showcase for filmmakers from around the world The first time I became aware of the fact that storytelling was a form of healing and once solely served the purpose to create a society s vision was when I went to drama school in Berlin about 20 years ago It simply fascinated me as a young acting student at the drama academy during these beloved lectures of theatre history that the first actors and story tellers in old Greece were literally priests Back then they were the keepers of wisdom the healers and collaborated closely with the Senate the political group chosen to govern their polis their community with wisdom and foresight and other highly sophisticated tools such as theatre and all that in the 6th century BCE The first theatre was a simple circle the choros drawn in the sand what started out as circular dancing evolved soon into stories being acted out that were written to warn and inspire and to allow the audience the experience of catharsis the emotional journey and the relief as they watched the play s heroes navigate moral conflicts be it in the shape of tears or laughter As you might have figured out by now I always had a great love for the Greek classics and in my work as a director and now also as a Festival Director I look out for these famous old baselines of stories that have been re told 1000 times and more and I am always delighted when I find them or can incorporate them into my own content when I create Human emotions are complex and diverse but over thousands of years the main human concerns and desires have stayed the same we want to eat when we are hungry we want to be loved protect the ones we love we want to be healthy and safe Hence the choice for my award the winged Hellenistic Statue of Nike the goddess of victory This victory is service power and love However it is very important to not develop a snob culture around impact films there is nothing worse than the artsy fartsy police who believes that layered and purposeful content can only come in the package of dreary depressing drama or blaming guilting andjudging all the wrongs in the world I prefer entertainment for the sake of entertainment a thousand times over movies where misguided creators got carried away with their self importance and exude this unpleasant and exclusive superiority I guess that s why Del Weston Theresa and I clicked on that first day we met because just like these two lovers of creators films and passionate people they see the potential everywhere and enhance and push where they can to create good Now imagine what a world this can be if all filmmakers or maybe let s just start right here at the family if all of us once we have that first draft down on paper we revisit our story again and ask a few questions What is my intention Who am I making this for Will my story give someone a voice Will this film bring a bit more peace Will this film educate Will this film heal Will it inspire Motivate Lift up Give Answers Ask important questions Highlight what society has to focus on in a constructive way Will this film in its own way make the world a tiny bit better Since my festival is all about filmmakers who have asked themselves these questions and put a large piece of their hearts and soul in their content I would like you to understand that issue films do not equal boring or preachy or whiny in my books I believe that it is extremely important for the art of moving images i e film to be above all entertaining to surprise reveal to have layers suspense contrast and a sense of lightness and humor if you then collaborate with a passionate cinematographer who gives you the breathtaking images that wow our visual sense if you get that fabulous composer sound production designer a whole team of like minded artists and producers that prefer to not sell out but rather share the same passion and goals as well do you not think we can as a power team of visionary artists with the possibility of filling 1000 ands of cinemas and streaming services all over the world contribute massively to where things are going on this planet I believe we can l I KNOW we can So please beloved family of creatives use the family feel of our festival to not only talk about the market and purely business related entertainment industry topics when I see you for a drink at TGI s Friday I dare you to reveal a piece of your soul share your vision your creative dreams and find collaborators dancing to the same beat if not here at the AOF Megafest then where I love you Anabelle D Munro CEO Festival Director of Anabelle Munro T M I F International Film Festival And of course your always loving and supportive

She stepped out into the cold dark midnight rain to find no one there waiting for her I watched as Ashley started to panic where is he But still in denial of what some deep subconscious part of her soul knew she continued to tell herself everything was fine Im sure hejust fell asleep He ll be at home when I get there It s always uncom fortable to watch them lie to themselves but watching Ashley do it that one hurt By Ashley Rente1 I watched as her co worker dropped her off at an empty dark apartment No sign of Brian and still no answer on his phone Still in denial I watched as she went inside and sat down on the couch perfectly positioned to look out the window She sat there in silence staring out the window for hours desperately waiting to catch a glimpse of his rain covered car glistening under the soft glow of the street _ lamps After hours of waiting she eventually broke down frantically calling loved ones in the middle of the night to see if they had heard from him It was 4 ___ uncharacteristic for him not to come home or return phone calls Even on 1 his worst days he had always answered the phone for her 1 When I took thisjob I had no idea what I was getting myself into but it seemed a hell of a lot better than eternal damnation Not many people know this but they give you a choice when you go to Hell Either rot in the flames or become a guardian angel and help others avoid the path you took in life I didn t like either option but of course I _ agreed to become a guardian I ve been known to be a bit tough even detached at times but you do thisjob as long as I have and you would be too It had been 2 000 years since I d felt attached to a case but this girl Ashley she was different It was after three days of agony uncertainty and numerous calls to the j _

him I m sorry I need to speak to next of kin Voice quivering 1 share of people over the lifetimes But Brian had a heart of gold she replied Pleasejust tell me if he s ok I m sorry ma am I m not at and it was a quite the tragedy the day he passed away But he i 1 liberty to say Click The call was over She waitedjust seconds before wasn t my case she was That s when the real work started for me 1 l

learned over the centuries preparation isn t always screams echoed through the room Watched the glass shatter from the _ enough frames falling off the wall as she ran out the door desperately gasping for air My heart broke as she fell to her knees in the middle of the street It all started on that dark dreadful day in December It was a typical screaming in such a way that no one within earshot could avoid winter day in New England cold rainy overcast skies The type of weather sharing in her pain you d expect to experience on the day you lose a loved one It started out like any other day she woke up and got ready he drove her to work they kissed goodbye J If experience has taught me anything it s that moments like these are I ll pick you up after work sweetheart She loved when he called her sweetheart pivotal to a person s development If I were a betting man I would have bet she was soft like that on Ashley s success Like I said I liked this one and its been a few lifetimes since I ve said that about anyone But Ashley had something different It was half way through her shift when she felt something was wrong There s a about her some glow that you couldn t resist The world hadn t

it s always a 50 50 chance of had figured it out She knew something was wrong but denial swept over whether they come back from that grief or not some people never heal But her Maybe he sjust taking a nap I m sure he ll be here to pick me up after _ Ashley not only did she heal she took back more control of her life than she work Repeating those words over and over again in her head for the rest of i had ever had before She was unsure of herself before Brian s death afraid to the shift Desperately trying to comfort herself he sjust sleeping I m sure take chances dependent upon the approval of
