Indie Cinema Showcase Presents Star Wars Celebration VI 2012

We had a great time at this year’s Star Wars Celebration VI at the Orange County Convention Center! One group we kept seeing over and over was the local Orange TV/VISION television show, Indie Cinema Showcase. We couldn’t attend all four days of Celebration but judging by their tweets, Indie Cinema Showcase did and it looks like they had the most fun!

 

Orange County residents can catch Indie Cinema Showcase on VISION TV five times a week on Brighthouse Channel 198, Comcast Channel 98 or AT&T U-Verse Channel 99 (Sundays at 2am & 3pm, Tuesdays at 10am, Thursdays at 6pm and Fridays at 10pm). For those out of county/state, check them out on iTunes or via their website, www.indiecinemashowcase.com, where all three seasons are available to view. Also check out the website if you are a filmmaker interested in submitting a short film, no more than 10 minutes, to the show.

In case you weren’t aware, Indie Cinema Showcase is a Florida based television show for anyone who likes movies! They are in their third season and are local Emmy hopefuls — good luck guys! (Executive Producer, Gerald Godbout III, is already an Emmy and Telly Award Winner.) “ICS” spotlights our independent film community here in Central Florida as well as the talents of filmmakers, actors and crew from all over the state. The hosts are local as well; Christina CarmonaAllison Walter and Matt Doolittle, give you some great insight on some really talented, creative people and their productions!
