The Finding Felix Project is a work for screen and publication from Katy Kavanaugh, a curator and filmmaker ( Funding from Stanford University, The Freie Universität- Berlin and DAAD 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,

Simone Ionescu, Film Memory: Gulliver's Travels

We couldn't have asked for richer stories for our first two interviews. Interior Designer Simone Ionescu and Andreas Krüger, Managing Partner at Modulor Material Total took us to two very different parts of the world. Pulling up a childhood film memory seems to come with ease, despite the time distance some memories may have traveled. Following are selected clips from both interviews. More interviews will appear on this site through March 2011 with project progress updates following.
