The Wellington Film Festival is coming up. The three-day event will take place at the Cinema 8 Movies at Wellington from Tuesday, Feb. 24 through Thursday, Feb. 26 from 7 to 10 p.m. each evening. Each day will feature a film from the new “2053 Trilogy,” a filmmaking seminar and student films.
Founder Jean-Michel Millien wanted to put together a family-friendly festival that highlights Wellington and the surrounding areas, which the “2053 Trilogy” does. All three films, Two Girls, a Dragon and a Fisherman, More Girls, a Dragon and a Fisherman and Viejo were all shot in and around Wellington, Royal Palm Beach and The Acreage. They are family friendly and star 14-year-old Aeja Pinto, who has to experience growing pains and affairs of the heart, yet the films also have enough action to keep male audience members interested as well.
It is free to submit a film for consideration to the Wellington Film Festival. For more information, or to learn about sponsorships, visit www.wellingtonfilmfestival.com or call (561) 255-7625.
