Over the years, we have had many film students as interns here at Enzian and the Florida Film Festival. We are always proud of their achievements, but we wanted to send a special congratulations to Christy Rubenstein, our marketing intern/Festival assistant from two years ago who just got in to AFI as both director AND producer…decisions, decisions. Christy is immensely talented and we wish her well (and fully expect her to world premiere her first feature at FFF…).
Other UCF students have been getting into AFI over the past few years and most have had at least some association with Enzian. John Rutland not only had screened films at the theater, but appeared nude except for his shoes on the 2004 FFF poster (see below!) and clothed on a recent Variety cover promoting AFI. And of course, Aaron King (UCF ’04), whose film REDEMPTION MADDIE just screened at the 2007 FFF. We hope that all of them keep returning to O-town with their work.
