Each official selection of CENFLO receives an All-Access Pass, granting one representative entry into all VIP events, screenings, seminars, discussions, and parties. The networking opportunities at CENFLO are countless, and festival awards -- in categories including Best Student Project, Best Florida Project, Best Documentary, and others -- are presented by local celebrity guests. As an additional service, each feature-length or short submission that is not selected for the festival will receive a detailed critique outlining the reasons for its exclusion. It's all part of a festival experience designed to guide every filmmaker to perform at his or her highest level and to achieve extraordinary success.
CENFLO's exciting blend of top-notch hospitality and diverse networking opportunities prompted MovieMaker Magazine to recognize its list of "Top 25 Film Festivals Worth the Entry Fee." With its intimate and celebratory atmosphere, diverse array of films, and warm-hearted visitors eager to engage with great talents, it's not hard to see why this festival is so widely beloved.
