The International Family Film Festival: Fourteen Years and Counting Tirelessly Building a Strong Platform for Family Filmmakers To Our Loyal Friends, Filmmakers and Scriptwriters

Fourteen years ago, four friends committed to the family film genre, and decided that through hard work and perseverance they could make a difference in the marketplace for independent filmmakers. With clear purpose they set out to found the first film festival dedicated to emerging works by independent family-genre scriptwriters and film producers.  

They began with twenty dollars, abounding energy and a clear vision.  Fourteen years later they have delivered on their promise.  With resolute determination they have built a strong platform for screenwriters and filmmakers working in the family genre worldwide.   The festival has grown every year and the traditional studio-run mainstream film industry has begun to address the power of such independent family films as Little Miss Sunshine, Slum dog Millionaire and I'll Fly Away providing independent distribution outlets for these unique and valuable films.
The entire distribution model has changed several times during these fourteen years and now, with the help of a strong platform, filmmakers can begin to distribute their own work through the Internet.  The two necessary ingredients are a strong platform and a loyal audience.  The IFFF is proud to have dedicated its' time and energy into building both in the interest of serving screenwriters and filmmakers producing works appropriate for the largest possible audience- the family.

We have never asked our supporters for help over the past fourteen years but we have always had a membership opportunity which could serve to provide us with both financial help and emotional support from those of you who cared about this cause.  This year we are asking for you to reach into your pockets and join us- the minimal membership is $35.  It offers you a 20% discount at the festival and a festival mug.  If you choose to donate up to $100 we will send you a free CD, Driven from Arnold G, a 2009 Grammy-nominated artist, who has graciously donated his work to the festival.  Mostly, either donation helps us build the festival, the platform for family films and the audience. 

Please join us in our continued efforts to create a loyal audience for your future projects, a strong platform for independent film voices, and an international home for family films.

Of the four of us who started the festival, three of us remain, and we work daily to improve and enhance the festival and the organization.  This year we have a record number of films submitted from 23 countries, 24 states and 29 film schools as well as a record number of screenplays.  Join us at the festival, join us in our vision and become a member today!   

With Warm Thanks, 
Suzanne Shoemaker,  Patte Dee McKee,  Chris Shoemaker

Who is Arnold G?
AG: I’m just another person who has a passion for music. I love to perform and write music. I’m very fortunate to follow my dreams and turn in it to a reality. I take pride of my work. I am a people person. I’m very spiritual who believes to stay grounded as human as I can be. I love acknowledging my strengths as well as my weaknesses and thrive to be the best as I can as a great performer. I’m inspired by many artists, musicians and activists. I love writing uplifting lyrics that can inspire people to make a difference in their lives. As a dancer, I enjoyed producing dance tracks and watching people enjoying them self from the stage and to the dance floor. I like to bring more than just the music by incorporate my dancing skills bring it on the stage. It’s nothing better than seeing happy faces.

What do you do?
AG: I’m singer, songwriter, dancer and a performer who works with DJs on nightclubs, special events and concerts. 

How long have you been in the business?
AG: Dancing, singing and performing off and on, 10 years. Didn’t get really serious not until 3 1/2 years ago that I incorporated all of my talents in to one.

What got you into it?AG: This is an interesting question. Let’s just say, I got inspired by the incident that had happened on October 2002, and of course many mainstream artists in the music business. I started as a dancer first then moved on to writing and singing my own songs. 

What kind of touring have you done?
AG: Well I have toured internationally from Canada to Eastern Europe. I have performed at the White Party 03’, in Palm Springs, Knott’s Berry Farm, MGM Grand, in Las Vegas just to name some. 

What has been your favorite gig?
AG: Almost all. From the small to large productions, performing with my dancers and stage effect makes a big difference on the quality of the show. 

What are your plans for the future?AG: Keep writing and producing great music. Releasing another track for Grammy 2011 is my agenda for my next year single.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?AG: Breaking in to the main stream. Of course, this is happing now it’s just in the matter of time. 

In 10 years?
AG: Boy, I can’t even think that far yet!

“I think electronica is becoming a broader term for a lot of different genres; it’s no longer a specific kind of music within the dance scene.”  “These days it’s really hard to label a specific sound. Styles are mutating and sprouting into this all-over new sound, which is basically dance music going back to its roots of disco. There’s so much good music out there and I don’t want to limit myself to just one style.”  

Arnold G has pushed himself further with his much anticipated first artist album, “Driven – Straight To The Dance Floor” (out summer 2006). The title track has already dented the charts #1.  “I wanted to take things a little bit further with the album, my definition of an artist album is something you can play at the club, on at home or in the car and really listen to, so it’s 12 brand new tracks that are very diverse, probably the most diverse things I’ve ever done in the last two years.  

As a dancer you always have to take the crowd into account, but as an artist you have the freedom to make whatever you like, and I find that much more exciting creatively than being bound to that four to the floor or break beat or whatever.

It was also a real luxury as I had about 16 tracks by the time I needed to finish it, and I only selected 12, as I worked the album just got better and better, so it was like drawing a line and saying ‘that’s it’. It’s really hard to let go to be honest, to stop the creative process! In fact, finishing Driven has had the opposite effect and seems more of a start than an end.  I’ve really raised the bar this time in terms of song writing. I know everything about house, trance and dance - I know how to make it, I know about software and computers, but what I hadn’t had time is to invest enough time producing music technically, song structure, arranging, composing, that’s something a little bit new for me but yet I can write lyrics and melody in less than half a hour. I didn’t know I have such talent to write.  Fortunately I’ve found the right people to work with who understand about producing dance music and collaborating on my songwriting - so it’s been a perfect mixture of the two.” ...Arnold G
