Enzian Theater’s Brouhaha Announces 2014 Florida Film Festival Selectees

Imagine it. You make a short film and submit it to festivals, including Enzian Theater’s monthly FilmSlam. You blink, and win First Place. Next, your film advances to Enzian’s Brouhaha Film & Video Showcase (or you just submit directly to Brouhaha). When the selectees are announced, your short film is among them, and you realize, “I’m going to the Florida Film Festival!” Sounds cheesy but this just happened to 14 locally produced films.

Are you or your films among them? Here’s the breaking news direct from Enzian‘s website;

Now featuring an Audience Award, Brouhaha has quietly grown to become one of the premier outlets for locally produced films and videos, the best work from film schools statewide, and a fun-filled gathering for lovers of independent film. Audiences are made up of filmmakers, film educators, local production representatives, industry organization members, and the general public, all fascinated by the scope and creativity of films screened each year representing the entire spectrum of Florida’s immense talent pool.

The following films from the 22nd annual Brouhaha Film & Video Showcase, held this past weekend November 23 & 24, were selected to represent the “Best of Brouhaha” in the 2014 Florida Film Festival (April 4 – 13):

RUNAWAY RENN (directed by Zachary Johnson, FSU, ***Audience Award Winner***)
THE FEAR OF BEING UNINTERESTING (directed by McKenzi Vanderberg, Rollins College)
DEAD TO RIGHTS (directed by Daniel Neil, Ringling College of Art and Design)
CHICKEN OR THE EGG (directed by Elaine Wu & Christine Kim, Ringling College of Art and Design)
THE PAST (directed by Sean Sida & Garrett Callahan, Full Sail University)
MOONBOUNCE (directed by Michael Kefeyalew, FSU)
SMALL WORLDS (directed by Steven Sobel, Daytona State College)
TECHSQUAD (directed by TL Westgate, October FilmSlam winner)
THE FLY (directed by Jarelis Cabrera, Trinity Preparatory School)
WHERE IS ALICE? (directed by Zachary Beckler, UCF)
BYE HYUNGJIK (directed by Hyungjik Lee, FSU)
FINAL STRAW (directed by Riccardo Renna, Ringling College of Art and Design)
RUNAWAY (directed by Susan Yung, Emily Buchanan & Esther Parobek, Ringling College of Art and Design)
LITTLE AFRICA (directed by Curtis Adair, FSU)

Interesting tidbit about one of this year’s selectees; Techsquad follows in the footsteps of fellow FilmSlam & Brouhaha honoree, Brian Quain’s You Have This Long in that, it too was made in 48 Hours (but NOT a 48 Hour Film Project). Quain’s short was also screened during 2012’s Florida Film Festival. Also, Techsquad is the only selectee not part of a school project, having been produced by local production company Creative Inlet Films. Could (well made) short films made in 48 hours become a trend for local filmmakers? We’ll see…
