FILM FESTIVAL OFFERS WEEKEND OF ENTERTAINMENT
Independent film enthusiasts, are you ready to be entertained? This Labor Day weekend is the 7th Annual Central Florida Film Festival (CENFLO). Hosted at the newly remodeled West Orange Cinema at 1575 Maguire Road, Ocoee, the festival runs from Friday, Aug. 31, through Sunday, Sept. 2.
This is the fourth year that CENFLO has been held in Ocoee, and the Ocoee theater’s expansion will help accommodate the festival’s growing fan base. With the addition of another theater, CENFLO will feature this year’s films on three screens.
Individual screenings are $10 per movie, but a Movie Watcher Pass can be purchased for $25 per day. The pass includes festival movies on three screens all day on the day purchased, as well as a medium soft drink and medium popcorn and three ballots for the Audience Choice Award.
CENFLO’s special VIP guest this year is legendary Hollywood agent Burton Moss. Moss was the agent for Rita Hayworth, Barbara Eden, Lana Turner, Robert Vaughn and many other stars of the “Golden Age of Hollywood.”
Moss is participating in the “Acting in Film” panel on Saturday and will present the award for Best Feature at Sunday’s award show.
Of the more than six dozen films, 28 are from Florida, including three from downtown Orlando, two from the University of Central Florida and one each from Winter Park and Casselberry.
The awards show is on Sunday, Sept. 2, beginning at 8 p.m. Admission to the awards show is free with a ticket stub from a previous 2012 festival screening.
