Experience the best local indie film showcase and VOTE for each month’s winner.
Originally a project of University of Central Florida’s Downtown media Arts Center, Enzian became the home of FilmSlam when DMAC closed in 2006. Now in its seventh year at Enzian, FilmSlam continues to be a popular outlet for indie and student filmmakers throughout the State of Florida.
Usually held every second Sunday at 1:00PM, FilmSlam is a monthly indie film showcase and competition open to Florida filmmakers and students. This series empowers audience members to select each month’s winner, who then advances to participate in Enzian’s Brouhaha Film & Video Showcase.
