If you get the feeling, from the screenings, special events and parties, that this year’s Film Festivals have a more diverse crowd as those in previous years, your hunch was on the money.

Many festivals are getting great exposure to all nationalities and races.

Starting in 2011 and as we will see in 2012, many of the cinematographers making submissions will be of African America descent. The introduction of DSLR Video and the lowering cost associated with making a movie has brought a ton of Film enthusiast to the big screen or small screen as some would say.

Stay tuned for many new faces to fill the spots left vacant by our economy.

See you at a film festival near you.

The Florida Film Festival writes:

Their press release is below.


“The 2011 edition of the Florida Film Festival showcased 165 films from 25 countries, and its overall attendance was 21,000, which is slightly under last year’s figures. But in spite of that small decline in the current economy, the 10-day event featured many successes that included numerous sold-out film screenings, increased attendance to its Film and Food Celebration programs, international praise from the world’s leading independent film publication, and an illuminating and extended audience interaction session with an Oscar® nominee.

“The Festival provides the community with a unique, world-class cultural event,” said Henry Maldonado, President of Enzian and the Festival. “We continue to hear from volunteers, ticket holders, visiting guests, and internationally-acclaimed publications that the Festival has made an important contribution both locally and across the world of independent filmmaking. We’re confident the Festival is as strong as ever and our hope is to inspire the community this event calls home to increase its support.”
