The Flamingo Film Festival is dedicated to exhibiting international short films produced by student filmmakers. For the past nine installments, this event, held in sunny South Florida, has honored outstanding dramatic, documentary, experimental, music video, and animated projects created by students while enrolled in a college, university, or other post-secondary institution. It’s the goal of the Flamingo Film Festival to encourage student creativity, recognizing achievements in film and video.
In 2020 and 2021, due to the COVID-19 global pandemic, the 7th and 8th editions of the festival moved to Twitch. The 2022 festival was a hybrid event, showcasing student films both in-person and online synchronously. This year’s festival will be fully in-person and held Saturday, April 22, 2023 at FAU’s MetroLab in downtown Fort Lauderdale. Film program is TBD, and times, days, delivery methods, locations are subject to change.
