2017 Experimental Edge Film Festival Season - local Tallahassee film festival that screens at venues throughout the year in the All Saints art district surrounding Gaines Street and walking distance from FSU campus. During our 2016 season we screened films at the 621 Annex, Grain Lounge, Warhorse Whiskey Bar, Fermentation Lounge, and the Plant Gallery! We host Early Screenings throughout the year and an annual festival that takes place over a few days at multiple venues - lots of opportunity for screen time!

Critical Edge student-run film & art microfestivals feature a season of small film screenings where we play many of our short film selections alongside local/student filmmakers, followed by an annual Film Festival. A typical early screening event lasts an hour, and takes place at a local cafe, art gallery/studio space, or outdoors (depending on the venue). Our larger annual event will take place across multiple venues, run longer, and screen both feature and short films - the annual event showcases the films selected as winners of their submission category (as well as other selections).
