What We Do

Tallahassee Film Festival


Years: 2007-2008

The Tallahassee Film Festival is a multi-day event that showcases regional and national talent in the film industry by harnessing the creativity of university students and others that excel in production, cinematography, acting, directing and everything in between. The festival offers screenings and educational seminars, provides increased tourism during a typically slow time of year, promotes North Florida as a desirable location for film, television and music production, and capitalizes on Florida State University’s top-ranked film school.

This initiative team formed a 501(c)(3) organization and secured more than $100,000 in private funding for each of the 2008 and 2009 festivals. Volunteers spend hours screening films, securing additional funding, developing marketing materials and coordinating a wide array of festival activities.

In 2012, the Tallahassee Film Festival partnered with the Florida State University’s world-renowned film school to produce the Tallahassee Film Festival. For more information or to volunteer, visit fameintally.com.
