Florida’s celebration of indie film returns April 5th – 7th to bring cinematic revelries to the Sunshine State’s Capital.
Springtime is prime time in Tallahassee, Florida’s capital city, a place known for college football, the natural splendor of its canopy roads, and as the hometown of cinema legends from Ricou Browning (who played “The Creature from the Black Lagoon”) to Faye Dunaway, and, more recently, as the collegiate stomping grounds of Academy Award-winning director Barry Jenkins (“Moonlight”).
It’s also home to the Tallahassee Film Festival, which unspools April 5-7, 2019. Founded in 2008, the festival relaunched this year after an extended hiatus, welcoming more than 50 filmmaker guests and some 90 features and shorts selections.
Submissions are now open for next year’s fest. Features, shorts, animation, documentaries, experimental films and work for TV/digital platforms are eligible. Must be completed between January 2018 and the late submission closing date of Jan. 15, 2019.
Early bird rates of $15/$20 apply until Sept. 30. Submissions accepted through FilmFreeway, Withoutabox, Festhome and FilmFestivalLife.
About 90 percent of the festival’s program is drawn from submissions, which strongly favors first-time filmmakers and independent visions. Over the years, notable guests have included Barry Jenkins, Joe Swanberg, Kat Candler, Onur Tukel, Bill Morrison, Harrod Blank and Turner Ross.
