Short Film: EVERY LIMERENCE HELPS, 9min., Ireland, Comedy

Limerence (def.): the state of being obsessively infatuated with someone, usually accompanied by delusions of or a desire for an intense romantic relationship with that person.

Lauren is a lustful young woman, living alone during the pandemic. She falls for the man who has become her only social interaction throughout lockdown; the grocery delivery driver. To get closer to him, Lauren excessively places orders and spends her days prepping for these visits. Shaving foam and sexy underwear. Lipstick and libido.
Yet when the delivery man (Lauren’s idea of Tesco’s Finest) is replaced by a colleague, Lauren must break free from her four walls and pursue her love interest.

‘Every Limerence Helps’ is a comedy-drama set in Dublin that deals with loneliness and isolation. A story of desperate desire, this is Girl meets boy, Girl meets nobody else for months, Girl falls in love.

The irony of this festival is that its goal is to not be around in 5 years time. To eventually not be relevant because there is zero need to have a festival geared for female talent and female stories because the stories presented in Hollywood and around the world are a balanced showcase of the human experience from both sexes. Our goal is to achieve a lot of success and then fold into oblivion simply because there is no need for this festival. This festival was created by the FEEDBACK Film & Writing Festival as a simple reaction to a strong need to showcase female talent from around the world in a more profound way. When putting together the weekly festival, the administration noticed a lack of a female presence in the stories being shown at the festival. A classic example and analogy to the frustration is how the festival noticed that even the smaller roles in a screenplay were written for a man to play. There was zero reason for this in many stories. How a police officer, or a political campaign manager, for example with 3-4 lines in a screenplay was a "HE" character. Why? And these are the screenplays written by the winners! The talented one who have obtained agents and have began/beginning their careers as a writer.
