Florida Film Festival Announces List of Outdoor Films


The Florida Film Fesival is one of the largest film festivals in the south. This Oscar qualifying festival, is a 10 day celebration of over 170 films and events. From film lover to foodie, the Florida Film Festival has something for everyone.


With so many events and activites, it can seem overwhelming to a newbie. Before trying to devour the many independent festival films, I personally suggest catching one of the many outdoor films that are taking place this year.



Monday, April 13th at the Enzian

Food & drink specials start at 6PM

Film from 8–9:35PM at Eden Bar

Who doesn’t love a good date? Cozy up on a blanket on the lawn for a free screening of (500) DAYS OF SUMMER, an offbeat romantic comedy about a woman who doesn’t believe true love exists and the young man who falls for her.


8–9:40PM at Central Park, Winter Park

251 Park Avenue South

Winter Park, FL 32789

Don’t miss this opportunity to groove under the stars for this special 50th anniversary screening of GIRL HAPPY! Come watch Elvis Presley on the big screen in this killer 1960s flick as he takes to the beaches of Fort Lauderdale during spring break.


Wednesday, April 15th at the Enzian

Food & drink specials start at 6PM

Film from 8–10PM at Eden Bar

Enzian’s audience was asked to help select this Pitcher Show by answering a question: “What film do you find the most interesting?” And the winner is …drumroll… DONNIE DARKO, the mind-bending cinematic adventure of a troubled suburban teenager who survives a freak accident only to be plagued by doomsday visions guided by a monstrous rabbit called Frank. Bring a blanket and hang out on the lawn for this free screening. Eden Bar will be serving up your favorite cocktails, so stay after to discuss “interesting” films with fellow cinefiles. Make sure to check out some of the other terrific responses, which will be published in the FFF15 special edition program guide.


Thursday, April 16th at the Enzian
Food & drink specials start at 6PM
Film begins at 8PM at Eden Bar

2015 marks Enzian’s 30th Anniversary! Celebrate the occasion with other Enzian fans by enjoying AMELIE for free on the lawn at Eden Bar. This magical romantic comedy from visionary French director Jean-Pierre Jeunet is the third of five of his astonishing works that have played at Enzian.

All of the outdoor films are free, however, I highly reccomend checking out all of the other events, panel disccussions, parties and fantastic films.
