  MOVIE POSTERENCORE, 10min, Drama/Musical
Directed by Kris Theorin

Lifelong friends November and Rosie, a popular YouTube duo, are hosting a live stream tour of November’s new apartment, an event that forces them to confront their impending separation and uncertain future in real time and online in front of their 500,000 YouTube fans.

Director’s Statement: Encore is a look at the age-old scenario of someone growing up and moving away. It’s something that forces people to change and reevaluate their life. My brothers and I were dealing with this while filming Encore. I was graduating form college and they were graduating from high school. Realizing you are growing apart from old friends is something everyone faces at some point. We wanted to show a unique modern twist on the situation and the world of YouTube stars proved to be an interesting perspective to approach it from. These ordinary teens and twenty-somethings’s find their everyday lives and hobbies a source of entertainment for thousand of people. They have to perform for an audience while doing simple everyday things like walking through their own house. Our film shows what might happen when difficult real life problems arise while they are trying to perform for a crowd.

Audience Feedback: WHEN STRANGERS TOUCH YOUR HAIR, 7min., Drama

See the best of the December 8, 2016 Los Angeles FEEDBACK Film Festival


Directed by Anisha Adusumilli & Samantha Neyland

She fits everywhere but nowhere at the same time.


When Strangers Touch Your Hair is a fresh new perspective on interracial dating. Based on true events, this film tells the story of SAM, a 21-year-old who, with a Caucasian mother and African-American father, is the product of an interracial relationship. With a little bit of romance and a whole lot of reality, this is a glimpse at dating when you’re biracial.


Sam and Daniel are a young new couple still getting to know each other. Sam is mixed: black and white and Daniel is white. The two are so wrapped up in each other that neither of them gives any thought to why it might not work. However, once Sam’s friends point out the obvious racial difference between her and her new

guy, it’s all she can think about. Feeling torn and confused Sam ultimately tells Daniel her concern. While his initial reaction is very reassuring, Sam soon learns that one conversation will not solve her problem.

Filmmaker Statement

This film is based very closely on real life experiences. When I grew up the black kids always told me I was white and the white kids always told me I was black. As a kid this was very unsettling. I always felt like I had to pick a side and I hated it because to me that meant picking a parent to love more. Making this film was my way of talking about the insecurities that I’ve always lived with but only recently chose to acknowledge. To me, being biracial comes with its own struggle that is almost never talked about. I made this film because for once I want to talk about it. I think we’ve made a tremendous amount of progress as a society but the fight for equality and acceptance is far from over.
