Fixed is a 2014 short comedy film directed by Codey Wilson and Burleigh Smith. It features Amara Harnisch as Jemimah, a little girl who wants her dog to have puppies. The film premiered at Tropfest, the world's largest short film festival.[1][2]

Plot[edit]

Jemimah is five years old and desperate for her dog, Tilly, to have puppies. When she learns her parents plan to have Tilly desexed, Jemimah embarks on a quest to get Tilly pregnant. She sets up a lemonade stand in her front yard, advertising her needs, only to have it promptly shut down by her mother. She deletes her older sister's online dating profile, making it a profile for Tilly. A stranger contacts her and she agrees to meet, venturing out of her house at night without her parents knowing.

Production[edit]

The film started as a student production at SAE Institute, Perth, Western Australia.[3]

Several scenes in the screenplay did not make the final cut, including one scene where Jemimah dresses Tilly in her older sister's fishnet stockings and bra and tries to prostitute her on a street corner.[4]

Festival screenings[edit]

Fixed premiered at Tropfest 2014, where it was the only Western Australian finalist.[5]

The film screened at the 46th Annual Nashville Film Festival and the 48th Annual Humboldt Film Festival in April, 2015.[6]

Fixed has been accepted into over ninety film festivals, including the Albuquerque Film & Music Experience (New Mexico), the Cayman Islands International Film Festival, the Courts des îles International Festival (Tahiti), Davis Feminist Film Festival (California), The European Independent Film Festival (Paris), the Fargo Film Festival (North Dakota),[7] the Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival (Florida), the Hoboken International Film Festival (New York), the Julien Dubuque International Film Festival (Iowa), the Northern Virginia International Film Festival, the Riverside International Film Festival, the Sedona International Film Festival, the SouthSide Film Festival (Pennsylvania) and the World Music & Independent Film Festival (Virginia).

The film was awarded Best Comedy at the Poppy Jasper Film Festival and Audience Favourite at the Pacific Coast International Short Film Festival 2015.

Reception[edit]

Reviewing the film at the Speechless Film Festival, Minnesota, Judge Donna Casella wrote "How could you not love this story? This little girl has such depth to her performance. That face speaks volumes."[8]

"Ostensibly a light and fluffy story," wrote Douglas Sutherland-Bruce, "There is an underlying theme of personal freedom and choice subtly explored. Very highly recommended."[9]
