*The winning short films of the 3rd annual Imagination Lunchbox International Children’s Film Festival (ILICFF) that was recently held at the Baltimore Shake & Bake Family Fun Center and Our Lady of Victory Catholic School were announced and are from the U.S., Australia and Japan.

The ILICFF was hosted by Doresa Harvey (Magic 95.9FM) and ILICFF founder multi-award winning actor/filmmaker Anthony Michael Hobbs (PBS’ “The Abolitionist”), and presented in part by The Baltimore Times Foundation Times Community Services and Our Lady of Victory (OLV).

Winners included Director Cenera Davis (USA) for “Film Festival Choice” for “The Hungry Hedgehog” – who attended the event; Director Makiko Nanke for “Best Film Made For Kids” for “Good Night” (Japan); Director Brenna Johnson for “Most Uplifting Film” for “Ming” (USA), and Director Charlotte McLawerty for “Best Film Made By Kids” for “Social” (Australia).

The remainder of short films made by and for kids (up to age 18) that were screened at the 3rd annual ILICFF also came from Qatara and Russia. Great messages were key to the selections.  For example “Ming” had a message that what seems scary in the dark is not so scary in the light and “Social” had a message about the dangers of texting while walking or driving.

The ILICFF was founded by Hobbs who has two multi-award winning short films, One Nation and Naga Pixie, which he produced under his production company Imagination Lunchbox, LLC (www.ImaginationLunchbox.com). Hobbs is quoted as saying that he started the Imagination Lunchbox International Children’s Film Festival because he wanted to inspire youth like himself to work towards their dreams. As an actor Anthony Michael has garnered over eight awards for his skills. In 2013 he represented PBS at the Emmy Awards for his role as a young Frederick Douglass in their Special Mini-Series “The American Experience: The Abolitionist” (http://video.pbs.org/video/2321796209).
