Award Winning Short Film

Joy was selected for screening into 6 international film festivals, and received 2 award nominations. It also received a Best Director Award for an Experimental Short.

The film was cast remotely using actors from across the globe who self-taped their responses to the question: "what keeps you positive?" It was a "joy" making this film. "As a young person living in America in 2018, I often find myself sad, worried, angry and frustrated by the things I see in the news and around me. Making this film helped me deal with some of that, and when I watch it myself I feel the simple goodness in people and it gives me hope." - Tal Anderson
