Prodigy Anthony Michael Hobbs, an 11 year-old multi-award winning actor and filmmaker, will have his second short film Naga Pixie screened during the January 26 – 29, 2017 Bonita Springs International Film Festival (BIFF) in South Florida at the Bonita Springs Art Center (26100 Old US 41 Road, 34135). Hobbs’ film, a comedy/adventure, has already won at the Gary International Black Film Festival as “Best Youth Film.” Naga Pixie is produced by his company Imagination Lunchbox, LLC.

Anthony Michael also stars in Naga Pixie as Jason who teams up with friends as he tries to figure out why a Pixie (played by Trinity Breanne Perio) is always nagging them about things they think are trivial such as not hurting animals and respecting nature. His first film One Nation was produced when he was 10 years old and it screened at 10 national film festivals – he won at four. In One Nation, an inspirational film, Hobbs plays Steven who along with his five friends (Jeffrey, Spice, Hope, Rose, and Brianna) decided that they needed to give back to the members of the Armed Forces returning to the U.S. after fighting for our freedoms.

The Bonita Springs International Film Festival is an event of the Arts Center of Bonita presented by the Centers for the Arts. BIFF has a mission to create experiences that bring people together to discover extraordinary films from around the world. It presents over 70 carefully selected narratives, documentaries, animations and shorts. The Bonita Springs International Film Festival will have an opening night on Thursday January 26, 2017, a “house party” on Saturday and the finale awards on Sunday – with panels and discussion throughout.
