Hopefully bigger and better than ever. More information about the festival can be found on the web site at


The short film Tuned In deals with family, relationships cell phones and communication.  “Finding the right frequency on a radio is crucial to hearing the program that is on the air. The same is true for relationships”, says Marshall. The film is a story about Emma (Marley Cabral), a teenager who disobeys dinner table rules of her parents and gets grounded until she learns to get priorities straight and learns the value of relationships.  “A major part of the story deals with the frustration of Emma’s parents and friend Stacey, none of whom can seem to get ‘tuned in’ to Emma’s frequency and break her connection with her cell phone”, adds Marshall.


The cast of the film is Marley Cabral as Emma, Corina Leatherdale as mom,  Jamie Rainbird as the father, Talitha Wood as Emma’s best Friend Stacey, played by Talitha Wood and Brittany Sterling as Emma’s sibling.


Marshall feels this film is a great discussion starter if you want to bring the device dependency issue to the table and, the moral of the story is just breathtaking.
