RFF is a 3 day Film Festival celebrating 11 years on Amelia Island, Florida September 20- 22 2018 with the awards ceremony / brunch on Sunday, September 23, 2018.

This year we've made some awesome changes like a 50/50 split of the at the door ticket sales between the festival and filmmakers for their particular screenings. (Please note that the filmmaker has to be present to qualify and if there is more than one filmmaker in a block, all filmmakers split that block.) We've also added a filmed in Florida segment for shorts, features and students so we can showcase all the talent we have locally!)

We're also excited to announce that we've partnered with The 48 Hour Film Project Jacksonville FL. This years 48 Hr Film Project will be held June 1-3, 2018. As a partner Rendezvous will be giving a VIP pass to the judge's top winning film and to the people's choice top winning film. Other winning films will receive a day pass to the festival. In addition all winning films will be screened at this years Rendezvous Film Festival September 20-22, 2018 on Amelia Island. Also - if you haven't registered for the Jax 48hr yet - there's still time and they've offered a discount code available to those on our email list. So if you're not on Rendezvous Film Festival's email list yet just send me your email and I'll get you on there so you can get the discount and all the great festival news!

For all filmmakers present at their screening, the festival will be splitting the door ticket sales between the festival and the filmmakers in that block of screenings. We'll be honoring Best Film, Best Director, Best Actress, Best Actor and Best Child Actor in addition to Best in each category.

  • This is a GREAT festival! I was unable to attend, but the communication was amazing, and everyone involved with RFF is really nice. Emails were responded to within hours, and I received at least 2 emails a day during the festival letting me know about special events that were happening. They also did a great job of updating the festivals FB page, with general info and pictures, so even though I couldn't attend, it felt like I was there. There's a real feel of community with the festival directors and other filmmakers, that alone is reason to submit! Also, this festival has some amazing perks for the filmmakers, everything from swag bags to free dinners. I plan on submitting all of my future shorts to them, I recommend you do to!

  • While I was not able to attend, the fest organizers were wonderful to work with. I had a couple of filmmaker friends that attended and had nothing but nice things to say. Looking forward to attending Rendezvous in the future.
