Central Florida Film Festival

NAME OF FESTIVAL: Central Florida Film Festival (CENFLO)
SINCE: 2005
WHERE: Orlando, Florida, USA
WEBSITE: www.centralfloridafilmfestival.com
ABOUT THE FESTIVAL: “In 2005, Bob Cook, Writer/Producer/Director and Brandon Arrington, Artistic Director of the Osceola Center for the Arts, decided to produce a new film festival for the Central Florida area and thus, the Central Florida Film Festival was born. However, it wasn’t going to be another festival where film makers wondered if their film was even viewed or perhaps a friend or local filmmaker had won Best Picture based on something other than merit. Through the use of Bob’s industry contacts he was able to set up a festival program including; screenings, seminars and workshops with the goal to make those attending film makers better.”
