The clock is ticking…tomorrow (Friday, December 2) is the final postmark entry deadline for all narrative, documentary, animated, and international films over 40 minutes in length to be submitted to this year’s 2006 Florida Film Festival (March 24 – April 2). Those of you still mulling it over should dawdle no more–go to www.floridafilmfestival.com or through Without a Box and send in your cinematic creation to arrive in our offices no later than the middle of next week. Have no fear if your EPK or stills aren’t ready yet or if you’re only at rough cut stage. You’ll be in the same boat as plenty of others, so just send it in…NOW!
Kudos to thembob! The FFF and Enzian staff would like to send out a hometown hello and congratulations to Bob DeRosa, screenwriter, playwright, actor, director, improv comic and former Florida Film Festival Programming Coordinator now relocated to L.A. Yesterday’s Orlando Sentinel arts section featured movie critic Roger Moore’s piece on Bob’s latest activities in Hollywood, including co-writing a film called THE AIR THAT I BREATHE that’s about to start shooting in Mexico City. The $6 million+ crime drama stars Sarah Michelle Gellar, Diego Luna, and Ken Watanabe, with a rumored Kevin Bacon also joining the cast. The film’s director and co-writer is Jieho Lee (A NURSERY TALE), whom Bob met at the 2000 Florida Film Festival. Way to go Bob!
