OFF 2014OFF 2014b

With over 250 films screening, this is Orlando Film Festival’s biggest year ever! More than 300 filmmakers and talent from around the world will descend upon Downtown Orlando to represent their films. Welcome filmmakers!

Orlando Film Fest kicked off last night with a Wine’d Down Wednesday pre-party at Kasa Restaurant and Bar and followed with a opening night screening of the “pitch-dark comedy,” Tiger Lily Road. Director Michael Medeiros with a few cast and crew members attended the screening before heading over to Kres Chophouse on Orange Ave for a great after party.

Festival passes, VIP and VIP Elite passes are still available at orlandofilmfest.com. Stay for a single film, block of films or go for the VIP Elite pass to get priority seating and unlimited access to the entire fest including; every screening, party, panel, music conference, filmmaker and VIP lounges.

Below, Indie Cinema Showcase goes behind the scenes of last year’s festival to find out why MovieMaker Magazine named Orlando Film Festival one of the “25 Coolest Film Festivals In The World!”

Speaking of filmmakers, you may recognize the host of the segment above. He’s guest contributor Nando Torres! Readers here know Nando as a HUGE WWE fan, but he’s also an actor, filmmaker and Chief Operating Officer of Bad Kitty Films. Nando produced a short film called The Conversation which is screening this weekend at Orlando Film Festival. He and his Bad Kitty partner in crime, actress/director Christina Carmona, also play a pair of evil villains in another film screening this weekend called TechSquad, produced by Creative Inlet Films. I highly encourage you to check out both, with the least amount of bias I can muster!

This year the Orlando Film Festival is allowing the Purchasing VIP’s the same access that we grant to the FILMMAKERS themselves. That is complete access to everything Everyday. In years past it was the GOLD lanyard that allowed full access to all of the intimate cocktail parties, industry events such as the Universal Studios Backlot Tour, and the complete inner-workings of the festival. If you liked the VIP Pass then you’ll love the Elite Pass.

More soon on this .. Wait – Watch this !!!
