Short Film: THE LAST SONG, 8min., Canada, Drama/Sci-Fi

Max, the last man on earth, spends his days surviving the zombie apocalypse in his apocalypse bunker, creating video logs to document his life. One day, he finds a guitar, and begins teaching himself to play, finding solace in it. This becomes his primary hobby, even going as far as to find a book to help him learn. As he gets better, he begins working on his own song. When his strings break, he goes out into the wasteland to find new ones, only to be attacked by zombies. He gets back home, and as zombies break down his door, and the camera battery dies, with his last breath, he finally plays his song, and he dies, content.

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.
