Florida Film Festival Welcomes Filmmakers to Participate in 2017 Event

Based in Venice, Florida, Dr. Patricia Lynn Hough oversees the work of volunteers and facilitates adoption events in her role as staff supervisor at St. Francis Animal Rescue. In her spare time, Dr. Patricia Lynn Hough enjoys going to independent film festivals.

Over the last 25 years, the Florida Film Festival has celebrated the work of short, independent, and feature filmmakers from across the globe. Not only does the event allow these films to premiere to new audiences, but it also serves as an avenue through which those in the movie industry can directly interact with their fans. Most importantly, the Florida Film Festival is an Oscar-qualifying event in the Live Action, Animated, and Documentary Short categories. 

From April 8-17, 2017, the non-profit arts organization Enzian will host the festival. Throughout the event, attendees will have the chance to participate in nearly 200 activities and film screenings in between visits to Enzian’s Eden Bar. The festival welcomes submissions in both the short and feature-length film categories, over which judges will preside during the 2017 event. Those who receive enough votes from the audience and jury will receive festival awards. Grand Jury Award winners in the short film categories will qualify for entry into the Academy Awards.
