Erie International Film Festival
The Erie International Film Festival Call For Entries is now open to US and International filmmakers, and we shall accept all genres of film including Narrative Features, Narrative Shorts, Animation Features and Shorts, Experimental Features and Shorts, and all forms of Horror, Suspense and Thriller films of Short and Feature length, all lengths of Comedies and Documentaries, along with Feature and Short lengths of GLBT films for the 2015 festival.
Our festival is seeking the best films that the world has to offer, while working to give new and veteran Independent Filmmakers the attention they deserve.
As a 501c(3) non-profit, the Erie International Film Festival will accept submissions of films regardless if those films are of world premiere status at the time of submission, or if the film has been screened publicly or otherwise distributed anywhere at the time of submission.
Film enlightens the world, opens our eyes, and shows us things we do not see every day, and makes us feel things we do not always feel. Across countries, languages and classes, film has the ability to provide us with a release, an escape, forgetting the real world and the cares of everyday life while expanding the imagination and opening the door to new possibilities.
Our festival introduces independent filmmakers the world over to Erie Pennsylvania, as our City embraces the arts and culture that the worldwide filmmaking community delivers with new stories, and new points of view.
The Erie International Film Festival celebrates new trends in digital media and recognizes Transmedia Filmmakers who employ an innovative, interactive, web-based or multi-platform approach to story creation. Through open submissions, selections will be presented to the public via state-of-the-art-technology.
Our Festival’s mission is to help filmmakers reach the broadest possible audience, while allowing the general public to experience the power of cinema in the digital age, while showcasing the City of Erie as not only an excellent tourist destination, but as a filmmaking alternative of the East Coast.
Gasparilla Film Festival
First launched in the summer of 2006, the Gasparilla International Film Festival (GIFF) has grown into an entertaining and educational year-round entity in Tampa Bay. Well-known for its annual film festival, GIFF is operated by the 501(c)(3) non-profit Tampa Film Institute and continually upholds its mission to provide year-long support for film screening, production, and education throughout the Tampa Bay region.
Ft Lauderdale International Film Festival
Founded in 1986 as the Greater Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival. In 1989, the name was legally changed to Broward County Film Society, reflecting a membership base and year-round presence. In 1991, we added a dba of the Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival.
In 1998, Broward County asked FLIFF to become a co-tenant with The Vinnette Carroll Repertory Company in the lease of The Vinnette Carroll Theatre. Ms. Carroll passed away in 2002, and FLIFF became the sole tenant at that time.
Now in its 29th year, The Film Society has come a long way since its roots of being a vagabond organization to one of five Major Cultural Institutions of Broward County.
On May 19, 2014 the Amelia Island Film Festival Board of Directors approved Re-Branding to create The Rendezvous Festival. Rendezvous will become the 1st Film, Music Festival, and Interactive Gaming Festival in Florida. The new festival is all about Entertainment: bringing the artists and community together for a 9 day celebration. Featuring 100+ Film Screenings from 82 Countries, 3 day gaming expo, film and music village, and a film maker pitches to potential investors, plus much more.
Why the Name Rendezvous? It is an homage to the Evan’s Rendezvous, located in American Beach, a Music club that once hosted famed musicians such as Louis Armstrong, James Brown, Billie Daniels, and Ray Charles in the 1930′s, 40′s, & 50′s in a special beach community that was created for inclusion. In 1964, American Beach and the Rendezvous were hit hard by Hurricane Dora and were decimated. It’s time to recognize the proud history that the Rendezvous represents and its contribution to the entertainment industry.
