The Florida Filmmaker Award, presented by Flamingo Magazine (aka “The Flamingo Prize”), comes with a $1,000 cash prize. Films eligible for the Florida Filmmaker Award are directed by a current Florida resident and/or consist of a majority above-the-line crew who are current Florida residents and were shot in Florida. Even if your film is not eligible for the Florida Filmmaker Award, you will still be able to get the TFF “Freshly Squeezed” designation in our program which highlights you as a Florida-made film. Please include in your cover letter if your film was SHOT IN FLORIDA (and include locations) or made by FLORIDA FILMMAKERS (and identify names). Providing this information helps us program films for the “Freshly Squeezed” screening designation. This denotation in your cover letter may not always constitute eligibility for the Florida Filmmaker Award; but, IF YOU WANT TO ENSURE CONSIDERATION for the Florida Filmmaker Award, please identify both the above-the-line individuals who worked on the film and are current Florida residents, and where the film was shot in Florida.
