Dede: Mehmet with the Yellow Boots selected at Kids First! Film Festival

11 March, 2016

Our short youth drama, Dede: Mehmet with the Yellow Boots is selected at the  KIDS FIRST! Film Festival held in the United States. Now in its seventeenth year, KIDS FIRST! Film Festival is a showcase for children’s films, TV shows and DVDs from major studios and independent filmmakers. The festival partners with more than 50 venues in the US who host screenings of the selected films year-round.

A member of the festival’s  program committee commented on the film as follows:

Watching how this young girl manages to explore her Turkish roots in such a way as to bring about a major change in her family brought a smile to my face. Some programmers may take issue with the 11 year old running off to Amsterdam in search of her grandfather. Even though her slightly older neighbor boy accompanies her, she is still running away. But, there are appropriate consequences and a cheerful ending. This is well produced – good video and audio, a good story line and moves along at a quick pace. I recommend it.
