Florida Film Festival
April 5- 13, 2013
Orlando, FL

florida film festivalThe independent arthouse Enzian Theater in Maitland (about 15 minutes north of downtown Orlando) draws film fans all year round, but each April the internationally recognized Florida Film Festival attracts flocks of cinephiles from around the globe. This annual event features actor and filmmaker question-and-answer sessions, a star-studded opening night party, and exclusive screenings that represent the best of independent and foreign films.


The 2013 Festival

In 2013, the Florida Film Festival is taking place from April 5 through April 14.  2013 marks the 22nd anniversary of this film festival dedicated to bringing locals and visitors alike the very best in film. This 10-day festival is packed with events, including the screenings of over 160 films, over 100 visiting filmmakers, and plenty of food, fun, and parties. 2012's featured guest stars included actress Cloris Leachman, director Barry Levinson, and chef Marcel Vigneron; 2013's yet-to-be-announced VIP list is expected to be equally star-studded. Outdoor films are screened in Central Park in the town of Winter Park while indoor films are shown at Enzian Theater . Events are held in a variety of venues, including Eden Bar and the Filmmaker Welcome Beer Garden.


The Florida Film Festival is so full of appealing events that you are going to want to secure your tickets early. There are three ways of buying tickets: online, over the phone, or in person at the box office. This festival offers a range of tickets and passes, allowing each individual to find the right match for them. The smaller ticket packages include a number of film vouchers, festival posters, and two tickets to the sneak preview party. Prices are $50 for a five-pack of vouchers, $95 for a 10-pack of vouchers, or $180 for a 20-pack of vouchers. In most cases, individual film screenings cost $9 to $11.

Beyond these simple ticket packages there are some incredible festival passes that offer so much more. If you're willing to invest a little more, you can get a lot more out of the Florida Film Festival. The Cinephile Pass costs $450 (or $400 to Benefactor-level donors to the Enzian) and includes tickets and priority seating at all film screenings and admission to the opening night film. The next available pass is the Platinum Pass for $750 (or $650 for Benefactors) and includes first entry into all films, admission to the opening night film, admission to all parties, and VIP status. There's only one ticket that offers more: for $1000 the Movie Star Pass offers even more perks such as free popcorn at the movies, and admission to panel discussions, dinners, and more.

Festival Parties and Events

While film screenings are the heart of the Florida Film Festival, there are also many parties and events that lend it a festive spirit. The Opening Night Party is always a hot event, as is the Saturday Evening Feast (hosted this year by the trendy Cask & Larder gastropub) and the Awards Brunch. An additional fun event is the Wednesday Night Pitcher Show. This is a staple of the festival and includes a free outdoor screening at the Eden Bar. Bring a blanket and some lawn chairs. In addition to film, this festival also delivers on great food. One food-focused highlight is April 6th's Taste of Movie Magic event, featuring TV personality Francine Segan dishing on her favorite food-on-film moments.
