Jacksonville Film Festival

jacksonville film festThe Jacksonville Film Festival is an annual event in Florida that has been held since 2003. During the festival, works from independent and international filmmakers are screened.


The Jacksonville Film Festival was founded in 2002 by Karen Sadler and Joan Monsky to celebrate filmmaking and boost the economy in Northern Florida. In addition to viewing many film screenings, attendees of the Jacksonville Film Festival can also attend panels on filmmaking and topics related to cinema and film history. There are also many parties held during the festival. The film festival now has an international draw and in 2008 showed works from filmmakers from over 20 countries.

An ideal way to enjoy your time at the Jacksonville Film Festival is to stay in a vacation rental. Skip the generic hotel rooms and sky-high minibar and laundry service charges. Instead, stay in an authentic Jacksonville apartment or house. If you plan to attend the event with a group of friends, this is a great way to relax and enjoy your time away together while also saving on lodging costs.

Vacation rentals often offer a more convenient experience for travelers who plan to have a vehicle with them on vacation. Instead paying parking fees and waiting for a valet to bring your car, travelers staying in a vacation rental often enjoy free parking right in front of their rented house or apartment.
