Finding Felix Project

The Finding Felix Project is a work for screen and publication from Katy Kavanaugh, a curator and filmmaker (www.catapultproductions.net). A fellowship from Stanford University and The Freie Universität- Berlin allowed her to return to the Berlin Film Festival's 35 year-old Generation (formerly Kinderfilmfest) to collect evidence of the directive impact that international films seen in childhood can have toward shaping the breadth of a person's view of the world and the decisions they make. This investigation focuses on one eleven year-old film festival-goer whom Kavanaugh met while serving on the Kinderfilmfest's international jury in 2001. Ten years later, Kavanaugh wants to know how a childhood full of international films influenced Felix's life so far. Meanwhile, with help from Media Consultant Tina Toepfel and Gintare Malinauskaite, PhD History at Humboldt Universität, Felix has been found and is now in post-production. To help meet its completion goal, please consider contributing via our fiscal sponsor, Cinefemme.net.

It should be noted that FINDING FELIX production is informed by the best practices for use of film clips as set forth in "Documentary Filmmakers' Statement of Best Practices in Fair Use" 2005 publication and the survey by Patricia Aufderheide and Aram Sinnreich showing that these practices are becoming increasingly accepted.
