I'M NOT GONNA MOVE TO L.A.
(not your ordinary) monthly film festival
we want you to be known & known for what you love to do
How on Earth do you get your film or talents rolling? We asked that very same question. After 3 years of brainstorming and trials and errors we made this film festival. It is designed for actors to meet emerging filmmakers, it is designed for filmmakers to connect with talented people & it is also designed for show runners & producers to meet face to face emerging talents in the South East region of the US. If you survive this film festival YOU CAN SURVIVE THEM ALL!
FLORIDA ACTORS x FILMMAKERS x FILM STUDIOS
Ok! Here is how it works! Submit your movie - if you make the cut then you promote - be prepared to answer questions - get ready to network - pitch your next film project - listen and look around when your movie is playing. It's worth the ride!
a hard to please miami AUDIENCE
Miami is an event town. If this the theater is packed. It is because they expect quality. We encourage movie loving knowledgeable audiences to see the works of Florida filmmakers. Some filmmakers travel from far away to make their special night in Miami. We encourage audiences to talk to the actors & filmmakers as they continue their arduous path towards making cinema
