The 2020 Tallahassee Film Festival takes place April 15-19, 2020, at multiple locations around Tallahassee, Florida and the surrounding region. Each year the Festival brings the latest remarkable films in independent cinema along with many attending filmmakers, actors, and other industry professionals. Past years have included Barry Jenkins (Moonlight), Zoe Lister-Jones (The Craft), and Kat Candler (Queen Sugar). This year will be no exception.

One of my favorite regional film festivals! The programming is outstanding: for the films in competition, the programmers select excellent-quality and TRUE indie films that are not just the same films playing all of the other regional fests. Plus they showcase exciting titles fresh from Sundance, Slamdance, etc for their out-of-competition slots. (I gladly watched six features and three shorts in two days.) They are also extremely well-organized and communicative. Great after parties, Q&A sessions and a well-run awards ceremony (featuring beautiful trophies) on closing night. A relaxed and friendly atmosphere where the opportunities for networking with other filmmakers are plentiful. I greatly hope to return!

This festival benefits from a great and knowledgeable team. Despite it being fairly new, their programming was really good and we enjoyed all of the Q&As with some top documentary filmmakers. Definitely worth the submission fee!

Although I couldn’t make it to the festival because of crazy work schedule, I enjoyed the way this festival supports independent films and encourages Cinema as art rather than nonsense agenda which is very common among festivals these days.
