Alan French gets ready to cover the 2023 Florida Film Festival based out of Orlando, Florida. The festival primarily takes place at the Enzian Theater and the Regal Winter Park theater. This year, a few things to keep in mind.

First, the opening night film, You Were My First Boyfriend, is not only a product of a local filmmaker but takes place in Central Florida. It only plays on the first night, but it does play two times (once at Enzian and once at Regal Winter Park). Please be sure to pick up your tickets ahead of time.

Second, there are special events going on during the festival, including Q&A with John Cusack for Say Anything. A retrospective screening of Fantastic Planet is also scheduled to close out the festival. The animated classic will surely be a surreal yet rewarding experience for those in attendance.

Third, while the Regal Winter Park location is currently under renovation. While work continues on the exterior of the building, the interior theater is open. Please do not let this construction cause you to miss out on marvelous films in competition or those screening at the festival.

Below, you’ll find our continually updating list of films that are playing the 2023 Florida Film Festival, as well as some others from previous years.
