Florida, also famous as the Sunshine state in the USA, is the home to one of the oldest film festivals in the world, the Florida Film Festival (FFF); and this year the stage was set for the 23rd edition. Since its inception, this Festival has only gotten bigger and better and it has always been famous to be accredited as “the festival with a heart”, gathering tens of attendees each year.
A Win-Win Situation for All
The Florida Film Festival usually takes place in the month of April, lasting for 10 days between the first and second week: the 23rd FFF which already took place this year was from the 4th to the 13th of April and the entire team is already getting ready for the 24th occasion which will be held between the 10th and 19th of April. So, for 10 wonderful days every year, the FFF bridges the gap between 2 groups, the talented movie makers and the eagerly awaiting viewers. It is no wonder that after the final moments of the festival, everyone leaves with cherishing memories of making new friends; which is exactly why the festival is so warm to the heart!
Oscars, Here We Come
The Florida Film Festival has a great reward for those videographers whose hard work will earn them the top prize in the competition within the festival; those movies or shorts which will win the Grand Jury Award will spontaneously get a chance to run for the Academy Awards in the coming year, a lifetime opportunity which numerous, striving filmmakers are hunting for.
The theatres which always host the FFF are Enzian and Regal Winter Park Village and there are other venues which congregate the parties and discussions, showcasing around 170 movies every year, in the following genres:
- Midnight movies
Many guests have been seen to attend the Florida Film Festival and had become a part of history with their presence; stars include Emma Watson, Oliver Stone, Dennis Hopper, Jason Lee and many others.
FFF and the super balmy weather of Florida will definitely be a mood refresher and they are surely something one should not miss, as this fiesta will lets you take away a lot in terms of movies and entertainment.
