Protected ContentThis content can only be viewed in authorized regions: United States of America.

This collection of films – about friends both real and imaginary, as well as deep family love that is not always easy – is meant to tickle your funny bone and tug on your heartstrings.

For ages 10+

Total running time: 80 min.

Content advisory: Though all the films in this program are uplifting, some have content that explores emotions of loss, grief, and shame. The first film in the program, Stay Away, takes place during the pandemic when the main character is left happily at home. She briefly looks at a book about weight loss — a book topic CFFS does not recommend for children or for anyone, really. We are body positive!
