Organization of Independent Filmmakers, Orlando

– A Collaborative Film Community

OIF is an active film community.  OIF promotes hands-on learning for emerging talent, crew, writers, directors and support personnel in film production.

OIF holds local Film Challenges where production teams are easily assembled by networking with members. This creates a friendly and inclusive environment for talent and crew to gain hands-on experience, film credits, connect with others in the film industry, and increase their chances for career advancement.
These script-to-screen Challenges culminate in movie screenings, usually at large commercial theaters; which are then followed by an OIF Crystal Awards Ceremony. 13 awards are presented on stage for various categories, such as: best sound, best actor, best film, etc.
These Awards Ceremonies, are in turn normally followed by a Networking Event.
A year-end Awards Gala/Holiday Party is held, where the Best of the Year’s Actor, Actress and Film are awarded. Nominees are chosen from the winners of each genre category for films produced during the year.
