We’re happy to announce that Don Thompson’s feature-length WWII action-drama ‘Kaltenhouse’ has won two top awards at the Festigious International Film Festival.

The script won both the ‘Best Action Screenplay’ and ‘Screenplay of the Month’ awards at the competitive and highly regarded festival.

The script also won the Best Drama Screenplay at the Los Angeles Film Awards in 2019.

‘Kaltenhouse’ is based on the WWII memoirs of Norman A. Thompson (Don’s father) titled Kaltenhouse Remembered. The book can be found on Amazon here.

nextPix is shopping the project to Los Angeles based production companies and has also been working with European producers to find the best locations for production. If green-lit on schedule, the film should go into production in 2021 and be released in 2022.

We started nextPix over 12 years ago, and have worked since then to promote and produce human-centered films and media that focus on issues that matter to a lot of people. It’s been an inspiring experiment.

Some films, like Tibet in Song, CloudsSinging the Bones, or Bringing Tibet Home involved us as producers and/or funding sources in a significant way. Through our firstPix grant program, we’ve also supported a wide array of films that have addressed a broad range of topics, from domestic abuse (Recovering Irma) to the death penalty (Trials of Darryl Hunt) to indigenous rights (We Women Warriors) to outsourcing surrogate motherhood (Made in India) and corporate sweatshops (Sweat) – a total of over 16 feature films either produced or supported. Happily, many of the films have done well and screened at major festivals such as Sundance, Movies that Matter, Hot Docs, Chicago Documentary, New York Independent, Cinema for Peace and many others. Many have won awards; many have received national and international recognitionand distribution. But most importantly the films have all positively touched the lives of both the people who made them and saw them.

Since we have a ‘for benefit’ business model, where we devote a significant amount of effort toward producing, developing and supporting humanitarian-themed media, we’d like to sell you a good product intended to improve the world.

The product is Don Thompson’s book A WORLD WITHOUT WAR.

By supporting A WORLD WITHOUT WAR you spread a good message, help fund good projects, and become part of the effort to create peace.

Until May 1st, the publisher of A WORLD WITHOUT WAR (Del Sol Press) will generously allow for 100% of the net proceeds from the e-book version to go directly to nextPix.

You can take action NOW. What we propose is that at the grassroots level many, many people (meaning you) can buy and support A WORLD WITHOUT WAR, and that can make all the difference in the world.

We’re true believers in intention. And if we all intend A WORLD WITHOUT WAR it can happen.

We thank you in advance!

Don Thompson and Diana Takata
