“The Break Up” Selected by the Florida Film Festival

‘The Break Up is one of the 26 films chosen for the American Independent Competition from over 500 submitted in that category to the top rated* Florida Film Festival (March 27- April 5, 2009). This will be my second time screening a film at the notable festival.**

The Break Up was commissioned for the launch of Quarterlife’s social networking site in the fall of 2007. FFF is the fourth big name festival to select our super low-fi, $500 budget, made-with-a- crew-of-six-in-two-days movie. Amazing how a little movie about a jerk trying to dump his girlfriend with one leg can have such a long run. PUN INTENDED.

* According to Chris Gore in The Ultimate Film Festival Survival Guide; it’s also an official Academy Award qualifier for the short film category. Of over 1,950 festivals worldwide, only 47 share this distinction.

** Queen of Cactus Cove shook up the fest’s mangroves in 2006. Dominique and I attended. And sweated. Florida is hot even in March.
