Despite some initial doubts, the organization seems to have pulled off a remarkable festival.
Tonight the 4th Amelia Island Film Festival takes off with a Red Carpet Event at the Peck Center, the showing of Derek Estlin Purvis “Sunny Side Up 2011” with Parker Posey as Angelica Lovecraft in the lead and an After Party at Café Karibo.
Then on Friday there are some 20 movies, documentaries and shorts to enjoy at various venues such as Sheffield’s, the Peck Center, o’Kane’s and foreign films (obviously sub-titled) at the Anchor, from Spain, Portugal, Russia, Canada, Italy and Brazil.
Since the film festival last year, many changes took place in the organization of the event, often leading to the question if there actually would be another. We are happy to see that the organization got its priorities straightened out, serving an impressive line-up of titles and events.
Here are some of the events you will enjoy during the festival
Thursday 2-23, 7pm – Red Carpet
Friday 2-24, 4pm -PBS “Real Food Real Kitchens”
Friday 2-24, 5:30pm Judge Henry Adams Event

Entirely in the mood for some movie action, our Award Winning point man/ producer Rick Traum has been providing us with some hilarious explanations why sometimes the credits of people involved in the production of a movie takes 10 minutes of screen time.
