Competition to bow March 28th in Orlando
Fifteen filmmakers making their feature debut will compete for grand jury and audience awards at the 17th annual Florida Film Festival, running March 28-April 6 in Orlando.
World premieres include Tom Gustafson’s drama “Were the World Mine” and Jeremy Zerechak’s Iraq war docu “Land of Confusion.” Also in the lineup are David Zellner’s Sundance competition film “Goliath” and Jeffrey Schwarz’s Slamdance doc “Spine Tingler! The William Castle Story.”
“The scope of cinematic expression in this year’s festival is found not simply in terms of the volume of submissions or its demographics but in the variety of types of filmmakers and the issues they explore,” said Shanon Larimer, exec director of the fest. “This year, we are screening films that embody risk-taking, diversity and aesthetic innovation.”
