Through relationships with our families, we can ultimately learn about love, trust, and friendship, yet in some cases reflecting on childhood and familial relationships can bring up past traumas and insecurities. This group of films shows that for the most part, many people's family experiences land somewhere between the two. In unpacking these relationships, we can discover who we are, and decide who we want to be. Dealing with content including aging, the struggles of parenting, and separation, these filmmakers tackle difficult issues through narrative filmmaking.

Soon is a narrative short film telling the story of Marcus and his mother Ani who scheduled a videoconference to take news from each other. Marcus and Ani’s story came from a distinct feeling I’ve often experienced after speaking on the phone or in videoconference with close family members. A mix between "I'm so glad we made time to see and speak to each other" and "Why, if we love each other so much, are we not able to make more time to see each other in person?" — Jérémi Roy
