MISSION & OBJECTIVE
Our goal is to provide exposure as well as an outlet for filmmakers from around the world to showcase their work to the general public. At the same time we attempt to put together an entertaining and thought provoking slate of films for the Central Florida community. We are a film festival that movie watchers can afford and a festival with a goal to help artists to become better filmmakers.

If a short or feature length film is NOT accepted to our festival the filmmaker receives a detailed critique stating why. There is no additional charge for this service and we are one of the few festivals to start such a program. MovieMaker Magazine has named us to the "Top 25 Film Festivals worth the entry fee." Animated Projects, Foreign Films and Documentaries do NOT receive critiques.


ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
Our 2008 "Best Feature," "Pretty Ugly People," received a theatrical release on September 25, 2009. The filmmakers Brunson Green and Tate Taylor went on to make the feature "The Help." The 2006 & 2007 feature winners "Beautiful Dreamer" and "Last Stop for Paul" were well received at the American Film Market in Los Angeles. They have both found distribution and have sold several foreign territories.

We offer a full weekend of networking opportunities including, VIP parties, seminars, panel discussions, guest speakers, screenings, competitions featuring awards for the best Documentary, Short (30 minutes and under), Best Foreign Project, Best Animated Project, Best Student Project and Feature length films (60 minutes and over). We also give an award for "Best Florida Project" and "Audience Choice." It is possible to be a multiple award winner.

See clips from our past award's show on our website www.CentralFloridaFilmFestival.com.

Our Festival does NOT offer waivers.
