Our 30th year included 97 films from 25 different countries across the world, as well as productions created right here in the Tampa Bay area, this year’s festival appeals to diverse interests and filmgoers.

The Festival is our time to laugh and cry together; to be awed, touched, moved, and turned on; to share in original stories from across the globe that are relatable and strange, hilarious and devastating, infuriating and heart-warming. With the Festival we get exclusive premieres of the stories that matter to us, and we get to experience them in one another’s presence. This is a special time indeed.
