Florida Film Festival 2019 Highlighting Florida
By Kimberly Burke
The Florida Film Festival has a more than normal Central Florida filmmaker theme. Opening night film is Florida Filmmaker Todd Thompson's first look at his 95 min Woman in Motion. Followed by a $100 after party with local vendors and Tito's Vodka.
The 20 year reunion of Blair Witch Project will take place. The Central Florida vibe in film will be very strong with this event. Cast and crew are expected to attend the April 14, Sunday 8p.m. screening in celebration of the anniversary.
