This year, Make sure you join The Orlando Film Festival on 7 days of shows! It is their 12th year of showcasing incredible cinema from around the world!
We are proud to call the state-of-the-art Cobb Plaza Cinema Café our home. Twelve beautiful theaters with high-end digital projection located right in the heart of Orlando. All our events take place in or around the theater, which is walking distance from our official festival hotels. Audiences do not just watch quality cinema but also get an immersive experience full of spirited Q & A’s, panel discussions, script reads & fantastic parties. This is the perfect opportunity for filmmakers and screenwriters to directly interact with their audience, as well as others in the industry.
Named one of the top “25 Coolest Film Festivals in the World” by Moviemaker Magazine, we make it our business to take care of our filmmakers. In addition to large appreciative crowds, other perks include impressive discounts at many of the local bars & restaurants, as well as hugely discounted rates at our official festival hotel. On Thursday mornings we offer a filmmaker-only private backlot tour at Universal Studios, which is an eyeopening highlight for those who attend. Our nightly parties have been known to shut down a few bars and our sponsor Stella Artois always takes care of the beer. We also give out over 25 filmmaking and screenwriting awards with some fantastic prizes, including a ShortsHD distribution deal offer for EVERY winning short film!
We’ve showcased films that have gone on to Academy Nominations and even one that took home the Oscar. We’ve also been honored with a slew of celebrity guests including Cheryl Hines, Olympia Dukakis, Erik Stolhanski, Christopher Titus, Haley Joel Osment, Alison Brie, Bob Hawk, and may others. But the truth is you can submit a film full of A-list celebrities or something you shot at your Grandma’s house with some friends. Your film’s budget doesn’t matter nor does its premiere status. All we care about is finding high quality independent cinema.
If your film fits that simple criteria, please send it our way and join us for what will surely be our biggest year yet!
Our sponsors include Clear Channel, Stella Artois, United Arts, Cobb Theaters, DAVE School, Great Graphics Photoscan, Movie Magic, ShortsHD, and many others.
