This year’s festival goers will be treated to four astounding feature films. All have close ties to Florida and the Space Coast.
In the documentary And Two If By Sea, twins, CJ and Damien Hobgood, of Satellite Beach make waves in the surfing world and become legends in their own time. This fun, entertaining look back at the experience is directed by their close friend Justin Purser, and is narrated by comedian Daniel Tosh. The film is sprinkled with cameos of several other surfing icons of the time. Leave your towels behind, and come enjoy the sand, sun and waves in the air conditioned comfort of the Premiere Theater Oaks 10 in Melbourne.
Horror fans will be delighted with Celebrity Crush, a film written and directed by Oliver Robins, who is best known for the 1980’s Poltergeist films. Robins crafts a story of an obsessed fan of a B movie lead actor in a cult classic horror film. The crazed fan plans to make the object of her celebrity crush a permanent part of her memorabilia collection. The film stars many Florida residents including MIFF regulars: Michael Baumgarten, Eddie Craig and Jim Horning.
For space fans we have 50/50 Lunar Legends, from a series celebrating fifty years of space explorations with tales of the epic journey to space, those on Earth who lived it, and those who continue the mission today. Enjoy this fantastic look at events that occurred in our own backyard and launched the world into the space age.
When All That’s Left is Love is the emotionally gripping story of a wife’s determination to care for her Alzheimer’s- stricken husband in their home. With unprecedented, behind-the-scenes access, the film reveals the toll that the disease takes on families coping with Alzheimer’s, while also showcasing the power of love that sustains both patients and caregivers. The film was shot in Florida by the couple’s son, Eric Gordon, an award winning director and producer, whose films have been shown at festivals around the world.
