FilmSlam at Orlando Museum of Art
July 26 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
FIlmSlam turns 15! Join us at our new home at the Orlando Museum of Art!
For 15 years, FilmSlam has been Central Florida’s only consistent, public screening event for independent filmmakers. We have grown to become a popular local screening outlet as well as a collaborative and creative networking opportunity for independent and student filmmakers throughout the State of Florida!
FilmSlam has always been independently organized and run by local artists who donate their time and talents to ensure Florida’s novice, student, and professional filmmakers, especially those in Central Florida, have a dedicated public place to screen their works.
We are a safe space for filmmakers of all ages, disciplines, backgrounds, and abilities including filmmakers who happen to be female, minority artists, and members of the LGBTQ+ community. Each screening begins at 2pm, runs for 60+ minutes, and is followed by a live Q&A which broadcasts live on our Facebook page!
Don’t be shy! Have a question about a film in the line-up? Ask one of the filmmakers! We’re sure they would appreciate your feedback! After every screening, filmmakers, cast, crew, and cinephiles will gather to talk about the films they just watched, current projects, and more!
FilmSlam began as a project of University of Central Florida’s Downtown Media Arts Center (DMAC) in Downtown Orlando at the historic Rogers Kiene Building. We grew at Enzian Theater, and continue to grow at our new venue, the Orlando Museum of Art!
Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?
Not usually, no. Bear in mind, we are a (NR) program year round where all genres of short film are screened freely. Any content warnings will be announced prior to a screening. Be warned: October’s program which features an all horror, suspense, and sci-fi lineup of short films and is in NO WAY kid friendly.
What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?
Parking is available for FREE on a first come, first served basis at Orlando Museum of Art.
What can I bring into the event?
Only bottled water is allowed into the SunTrust Auditorium at Orlando Museum of Art. No food inside the theater, please.
How can I contact the organizer with any questions?
Please direct all questions, concerns, and suggestions to: [email protected]
What’s the refund policy?
At this time, there are no refunds on ticket purchases.
Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
Nope! If you’ve purchased tickets online, you should already be on our guest list. We’ll check you in!
Can I update my registration information?
Is my registration fee or ticket transferrable?
Yes. Please complete all ticket transfers prior to attending.
Is it ok if the name on my ticket or registration doesn’t match the person who attends?
As long as the purchaser is okay with you using their ticket, we are okay with it too. No worries there.
