Premieres of the best in cutting-edge current cinema; indulgent experiences in food and wine; a blissful mix of industry parties and special events; a star-packed attendee list -- this is the 17th annual Florida Film Festival, which begins on Friday, March 28 and continues for 10 days around Central Florida.

The creme de la creme in American independent and international film will be chosen from 1,500 submissions, premiering approximately 150 films from more than 30 countries.

Throughout the past 17 years, the Festival has welcomed a quarter of a million guests, premiered thousands of films and hosted hundreds of celebrities including Paul Newman, Campbell Scott, James Caan, Ed Burns, Jason Lee, Gena Rowlands, Christopher Walken, William H. Macy, Virginia Madsen, Oliver Stone, and John Waters.

Urban sophistication and avant-garde edge defines this year's opening weekend celebration as Anthony Bourdain, special guest and definitive epicurean badboy, joins other leading chefs for a shameless indulgence of the senses, beginning March 28.
