2007 Utah Family Film Festival Announces Jury and Audience Awards: "The Shorts Jury Award was presented to Salt Lake City resident Jenny Mackenzie for Where's Herbie, a heart-warming love story about 91-year-old Herbie Loveitt, a lobsterman in Georgetown, Maine, who still fishes every day with about 75 lobster traps. His passion for life, work, and people are contagious. After Herbie hauls his traps in the mornings, he spends every afternoon visiting his wife Virginia who is dying of Alzheimer's. With humor, warmth, and humility, Herbie shares his philosophy on aging, death and the risks of retirement. Herbie is an example of how to live the last years of one's life to the fullest. "
