World’s Smallest Film Festival
For big screen filmmaker Bonnie Palef, whose credits include such Hollywood hits as “Moonstruck,” “Marvin’s Room” and “Children of a Lesser God,” the challenge of the tiny screen was to make an impression with the audience in just a few minutes.
“It’s still about storytelling,” Palef said. “You have to distill a great amount of material into a soundbite… It forces you to be creative.”
Palef submitted a film called “What Great Thinkers Think,” in which the Dalai Lama’s exploration of the concept of love is illustrated by dogs and roast chicken.
