Flagler College will host a free screening of the documentary "Florida: Choosing the Future" on Oct. 10 at 7 p.m. in the Flagler College Auditorium.

Following the film there will be a panel discussion by Florida leaders including two-term Tampa Mayor Pam Iorio, Jacksonville civic activist Philip Mobley, and former Department of Community Affairs Secretary Steve Seibert.
