The Crisp-Ellert Art Museum (CEAM) and Flagler College are delighted to announce the inaugural Finger Mullet Film Festival (FMFF) to be held at CEAM on Friday, May 20th through Saturday, May 21st.
The FMFF is dedicated to nurturing an experimental art and film culture in St Augustine by providing an inspired platform for the best national and international short films alongside a burgeoning local and regional culture of time-based creators and storytellers. Our goal is to discover, cultivate and screen new local narratives as a means of generating critical discussion and empowering community collaboration. This year’s festival brings together film and video shorts by regional, national, and international artists and filmmakers, including an under-18 screening block and an exhibition of time-based art.
The exhibition Undercurrents, organized by Flagler College Curatorial Studies students, will kick off events on Friday, May 20th from 5 to 7 pm and will be on view through June 17.
On Saturday, May 21st, screening blocks are scheduled as follows, 18 and under films from 4 to 4:45 pm; local filmmakers and Flagler College Alumni from 5 to 5:45 pm, and National and International films curated by the festival’s organizers from 6 to 7:30 pm. Kevin Mahoney has organized special performances by local musicians to play alongside a selection of silent films by American filmmaker Maya Deren (1917-1961) from 8 to 10 pm.
A full list of participants is listed below, as well as at www.flagler.edu/fmff and www.fingermulletfilmfestival.com.
The Finger Mullet Film Festival was created by Patrick Moser and Kevin Mahoney, Flagler College Distinguished Professors of Art, and Julie Dickover, Director of the Crisp-Ellert Art Museum. This event is made possible with support from The Department of Visual Art and the Kenan Family Foundation.
