The annual Orlando International Film Festival (OIFF) is put together by the University of Central Florida’s Nicholson School of Communication and Media. The festival screens feature-length and short films created by filmmakers from around the world. Beyond films, programming includes panel discussions and Q&A sessions. The Orlando International Film Festival also works with Lions Club International to host a summer camp for children to learn about film and media.

 Notable Screenings

The OIFF screens features and shorts by filmmakers from the US and other countries.  The lineup of films appear to have a theme of death and despair, and perhaps this is a reflection of our post-pandemic life and current dispute (war) between Ukraine and Russia.

  • Welcome Ceremony
  • Legal Issue Panel
  • Filmmaker Q&A
