Orlando Film Festival
The Orlando Film Festival, now in its 17th year, showcases new independent cinema from around the world.
OFF is an eight-day experience that includes more than 350 films and industry panels and workshops, all geared to the 300+ indie filmmakers and 12,000 in attendance.
Among the feature films and documentaries being screened, we were drawn to “Rainbowland,” a film produced by William Ulrich.
To read Ulrich’s bio you will see a successful but troubled businessman who met his moment of redemption. “I felt like the Scrooge at the end of ‘A Christmas Carol;’ the Scrooge who finally sees the true meaning of life.”
That pivot resulted in the Rainbow Movement Foundation which promotes charity organizations, positive causes and educational initiatives.
In addition to narrative films, documentaries and workshops, OFF also spotlights short films, including those by student filmmakers.
The Orlando Film Festival runs Oct. 27- Nov. 3, 2022.
