A 3 day Film Festival located on Amelia Island November 16 - 18, with the awards ceremony / brunch on Sunday, November 19th, 2017. (Please note this festival was originally September 21-23 but had to be rescheduled due to the damage Hurricane Irma left behind.)
On May 19, 2014 the Amelia Island Film Festival Board of Directors approved Re-Branding to create The Rendezvous Film Festival. RFF is the only Film and Music Festival in North Florida and Southeast Georgia. RFF is all about Entertainment: bringing the artists and community together for a 3 day celebration on the beach.
Why the Name Rendezvous? It is an homage to the Evan’s Rendezvous, located in American Beach, a Music club that once hosted famed musicians such as Louis Armstrong, James Brown, Billie Daniels, and Ray Charles in the 1930′s, 40′s, & 50′s in a special beach community that was created for inclusion. In 1964, American Beach and the Rendezvous were hit hard by Hurricane Dora and were decimated. It is time to recognize the proud history that the Rendezvous represents and its contribution to the entertainment industry.
