Transform an average "dinner and a movie" night into a cutting-edge experience at this year's 20th annual Florida Film Festival hosted by Enzian. The 10-day festival, April 8-17, features premier American independent and international film, special events, and tantalizing film and food pairings.
This year's opening night film and party kicks off the festival with a provocative twist, showcasing a new documentary from Academy Award-winning filmmaker, James Marsh. Marsh's thought-provoking film, "Project Nim," tells the tale of a chimp taken from its mother and raised as a human in an upper west side brownstone in 1970s New York. At the opening night party, enjoy the culinary arts with creative dishes from Orlando's own like Luma on Park, The Ravenous Pig and K Restaurant.
With a lineup of 160+ films, the festival offers a variety of cinematic entertainment, including narrative films, documentaries, shorts, food films and feature films. Featured films include "Snowmen," a family comedy starring Ray Liotta and Christopher Lloyd, and "Terri," a coming-of-age film starring John C. Reilly.
And don't forget to keep your taste buds entertained with some of the festival's "Film and Food Celebration" events that embrace Florida's flavors, such as the Fish Camp Brunch and Floridian Feasting: A Native Tribute.
Individual film tickets start at $10 and packages start at $40. Tickets and a complete list of events are available at FloridaFilmFestival.com.
