Apalachicola Riverfront Film Festival
Apalach River Film Festival will be held at Riverfront Park in downtown Apalachicola on Saturday Oct 10. The event is from 6-10 pm Eastern Time.
Elam Stolzfus and Nic Stolzfus, area film producers, will be there with two of their films featured as part of the festival under the stars on the river. An excerpt from the Coastal Dune Lakes: Jewels of Florida’s Emerald Coast film, as well as the Apalachicola Riverview short, will be shown as part of the 2015 Apalachicola Riverfront Film Festival. The Coastal Dune Lakes documentary has received 4 TELLY Awards - Cinematography, Documentary, Wildlife/Nature theme and a People's online voter's choice.
Join us for a unique film festival experience on the majestic Apalachicola River beneath October’s full moon, as we celebrate the art and love of filmmaking while enjoying the outdoors!
This event features independent short films from around the world, local films, documentaries and student films. There is something for everyone to enjoy with film genres ranging from environmental documentaries to comedies, dramas, animation and music videos. This year’s special guest is Kevin McCarey, an Emmy Award winning filmmaker, published author and aspiring playwright, and currently a Professor of Film at Savannah College of Art & Design. Local cuisine, fine wines, and beverages will be offered upon entering the festival through an inviting yet elegant tent, then settling down on the lawn of Riverfront Park with your chairs & blankets to watch the show on a 40 foot screen nestled at the southern end of the park. The three hour event starts at 7:30pm, so come a little early to enjoy the food, scenery and to grab a good seat!
