Of the cinematic kind, that is! And not just drama though, documentary, shorts and more! Today (March 19) kicks off the 7th annual Gasparilla International Film Festival which lasts thru Sunday, March 24.
The team at Elan Event Studio, and GIFF board of directors and team, will get to see all of their hard work come together today! Actually, last week there were pre-GIFF events (hence our missing-in-action status on the blog. We know, excuses, excuses.), including a VIP pass holders event and a private party called, Rock the Loft, hosted by our friends at The Clear Agency. So basically, it’s GIFF month.
Tonight is Opening Night featuring the world premiere of Empire State, starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Emma Roberts, Liam Hemsworth and more, and then five more days of films, education panels, parties and fun! The Closing Night film is a moving documentary called, Silent Majority, by mother/daughter duo, Leslie and Lindsey Glass.
Like years prior, we’ve been handling the press – from working with the filmmakers’ PR teams to booking media interviews – and the interesting experiences, coverage and cool happenings from that alone are a post (or documentary-worthy) for another day!
We hope that you’ll be able to come out to enjoy some of the fun! There’s still time to purchase your tickets here, and visit our client and media partner, 83 Degrees Media for a chance to win tickets to the Festival this week.
Hope to see you there!
