Celebrating its 16th anniversary, Enzian’s Brouhaha Film & Video Showcase is an annual event spotlighting the work of Florida’s finest independent short filmmakers. From its humble beginnings, this event has quietly grown to become one of the premier outlets for locally produced films and videos, the best work from film schools statewide, and a fun-filled gathering for lovers of independent film. Audiences are made up of filmmakers, film educators, local production representatives, industry organization members, and the general public, all fascinated by the scope and creativity of films screened each year representing the entire spectrum of Florida’s immense talent pool.
The 2007 Brouhaha Film & Video Showcase will take place on the afternoons of December 8 & 9. Films will be judged by a panel of local industry professionals for a chance to win a spot in the “Best 0f Brouhaha – Emerging Filmmakers Showcase” in the 2008 Florida Film Festival (March 28 – April 6). While some of the four programs at this year’s Brouhaha will come from the monthly FilmSlam winners, and some more will be curated by schools invited to submit their best 20 minutes of work, there will still be plenty of room for the cream of the crop of independent submissions to crack the lineup. But time is running out…the entry deadline for postmark is next Friday, 10/26 (coincidentally the first “features” deadline for the Florida Film Festival as well), so it should be a busy time in the old Enzian mailroom.

If you are a Florida filmmaker and have something no longer than 25 minutes you’d like the world to see, now is the time to get on the goodfoot and send it our way. Good luck!
