The #OregonMade, live-action, “Timmy Failure:Mistakes Were made” will be premiering in the “Kids” section of the Sundance Film Festival 2020. This section of the Festival was created especially for the “youngest independent film fans. Programmed in cooperation with Utah Film Center, which presents the annual Tumbleweeds Film Festival, Utah’s premiere film festival for children and youth.” “Timmy Failure” was inspired by the popular books of the same name (by Stephan Pastis, a New York Times best-selling cartoonist. Pastis also wrote the movie). “Timmy Failure” will also be showing on the new Disney +.
