After below average attendance at the last couple of FilmSlams, Enzian’s monthly Sunday afternoon showcase for Florida filmmakers bounced back with a solid program and a great crowd last weekend. Around 100 people turned out to support their friends and family and in-state indie filmmaking, and Craig Calamis’ THE DRIFTER reaped the benefits by taking 1st Place in the Audience Award balloting and securing a spot in December’s Brouhaha Film & Video Showcase. Craig’s film about a newly engaged couple finding themselves in the wrong place at the wrong time clearly impressed. Congratulations also to Scott Stolzar for his NEVER AGAIN (A TASTELESS ROMANTIC COMEDY) earning 2nd Place honors and Katharine Leis’ AVERAGEMAN for taking 3rd.
Mark your calendars for FilmSlam 8 coming August 9. See you there and thanks for your support of community programming.
