Only high-caliber Indie Short and Feature Films!

This festival is intended to showcase high-quality, contemporary films produced not only in the Tampa Bay FL region, but worldwide. The festival is now held twice yearly. Due to ongoing renovations at our permanent home, the festival will now be held online for the current season only. When the festival runs for our seventh season in 2023, we expect to host it back at the Holiday Inn Express, Oldsmar FL. The festival would like to offer a free waiver code for any filmmaker who submitted an entry for the current season. More details are available on
