About us


Palm Bay, Florida is a small community on the Atlantic Coast, about an hour east of Orlando.  Orlando is, of course, the home of Disneyworld, Epcot, Animal Kingdom, Universal, and dozens of other "vacation" destinations.  Here in Palm Bay, we are known as the "Space Coast", because  we are the home of Kennedy Space Center, and Space-X. 


We welcome films and filmmakers from all over the U.S.  We proudly present a casual, "no frills" show, consisting of a "meet-and-greet" before the program, followed by a block of films,  and ending with a filmmaker question and answer session.  During the question and answer session, we also present "Best" awards in categories, such as cinematography and editing, as well as  "Best Web Series", "Best Documentary", "Best PSA", and many others.


We have shown over 600 films and presented dozens of awards. We have been able to keep our entry fees low by sticking to our "back-to-basics" approach.  We don't have red carpets, parties,  banquets, or other (expensive)  agendas.  We simply set up a projector, put out a few chairs, and enjoy the films. It's all about the films...and YOU.  





This is our 10th year, and

our 16th show.
