Don't Miss This Year's Melbourne Independent Filmmakers Festival October 23-24

By SOP newswire2

Melbourne, FL -- A multitude of cutting-edge award-winning independent films have been selected for presentation at this year`s Melbourne Independent Filmmakers Festival (MIFF 2015) on October 23-24. Each year the MIFF showcases fantastic independent films in numerous genres. This year`s theme is "Dynamic Duos" to celebrate the incredible contribution music has made to cinema and our partnership with the Space Coast Symphony Orchestra!  We have teamed six film directors and music composers(The Dynamic Duos!) to score six specially produced and selected silent films for this year`s festival. These projects will be shown featuring a live performance of these new film scores by the Space Coast Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Aaron Collins.

The MIFF is proud to locally premiere the hit family film The Martial Arts Kid! This film directed in Brevard County by award-winning director and frequent MIFF alumnus Michael Baumgarten features Florida`s beautiful Space Coast and martial arts legends Cynthia Rothrock "The Lady Dragon" and Cocoa Beach`s own Don "The Dragon" Wilson! The film features rising star Jansen Panettiere and promotes a strong anti-bullying message!

The festival includes special celebrity guests, a comedy film program with the Not Quite Right Improv Comedy Troupe, a Saturday night red carpet welcome, culinary-tastings, live music with recording artists Robin & Eddy, and several panel discussions on filmmaking all at the beautiful Premiere Theaters Oaks 10. But what sets the MIFF apart is that all the funds it raises goes to charity. This year`s event helps support The No Limits Academy .
