Experience Florida’s best local independent film showcase and VOTE for the winner!
Originally a project of University of Central Florida’s Downtown Media Arts Center, Enzian became home to FilmSlam when DMAC closed in 2006. Now in its 14th year, FilmSlam continues to be a popular screening and networking outlet for independent and student filmmakers throughout the State of Florida.
Held six times a year, usually on the second Sunday at 1:00PM, FilmSlam is an unrated, independent film showcase and competition open to all Florida filmmakers and students. This series empowers audience members to select a winner, who then advances to the selections committee for the Enzian’s Brouhaha Film & Video Showcase.
Each winner, event archive, and a library of live filmmaker Q&As, may be found on FilmSlam’s Facebook Page.
