If you're looking for a feel-good, family sci-fi film, F.R.E.D.I. might do the trick. It's about a boy who befriends an artificial intelligence that he then has to shield from nefarious government types. What's unique about the film's release on May 3, 2018 is where it happened - at a film festival you've probably never heard of but with some big aspirations.
