Feel Good Film Festival Starts Tomorrow
One of my favorite new summer traditions returns to Hollywood Blvd tomorrow night, and this year it looks like it’ll be better than ever.
The 3rd Annual Feel Good Film Festival starts this Friday with their trademark yellow carpet opening night hosted by Curb Your Enthusiasm’s Cheryl Hines. I love specificity in art, and by cutting such a warm and fuzzy niche from the WithoutaBox universe, FGFF has hit a heart-warming motherlode. Film festivals can be intimidating, they’re often a hodge podge of not only quality but also tone. What better way to counter this uncertainty than to exclusively program movies that uplift the spirit?
The first night of the festival, which lives at the historic Egyptian Cinematque, will include a screening of Father Vs Son, a comedy starring the infinitely adorable and hilarious Eric Stonestreet (Cameron from Modern Family). In addition to the talented filmmakers and artists who will receive $100,000 in prizes, this year’s special honoree is Shirley Jones. There’s a party in the courtyard every night, and that everyone will be feeling fabulous.
