The 2022 Tallahassee Film Festival takes place September 3-4 at multiple venues downtown and in the All Saints district between FAMU and FSU. Each year, the festival highlights prize-winners and audience favorites from major festivals such as Sundance, SXSW and Tribeca, and offers a showcase for fresh discoveries of new, fiercely independent work – often with the filmmakers in attendance. Past years have included Denis Villeneuve (Dune), Bong Joon-ho (Parasite), Barry Jenkins (The Underground Railroad), Zoe Lister-Jones (The Craft Legacy), Joe Swanberg (Easy), Paolo Sorrentino (The Young Pope), Kat Candler (Queen Sugar), and Khalik Allah (Lemonade).
The Tallahassee Film Festival held its 14th annual festival on Labor Day weekend, with over 50 films to choose from. We appreciate all the hard work and artistry the filmmakers put into their films. The audience and our directors had some tough choices to make this awards season, but we’re excited to share these winners after Sunday’s awards ceremony. A big thank you goes to our Florida Filmmaker Award co-sponsor, Flamingo Magazine. Be on the lookout for an article about this year’s recipient in their upcoming issue.
