Jan 6, 2017

This year’s 7th annual St. Augustine Film Festival, held between Jan. 20 and Jan. 22, will feature 40 films from 20 countries, including the short film “Jordan Almonds” produced by Flagler College screenwriting instructor Lorraine Portman.

The festival is co-sponsored by Flagler College, Corazon Cinema and Cafe and Lightner Museum.

“We are very excited about the quality of films and subject matter that we’ll be showing this year at the St. Augustine Film Festival,” said festival president Gregory von Hausch. “We have romantic comedies, mysteries, drama, and documentaries from Argentina to Taiwan, and we’re also pleased to be showcasing Florida through the lens of several people and events to a degree we haven’t done before.”

Many directors, producers or actors will attend to discuss their works with the audience. Portman’s film will be screened on Saturday, Jan. 21 at 5:45 p.m. in Lewis Auditorium.
