Crystal Reel Awards Celebrates the Best in Florida Filmmaking

17th Annual Crystal Reel AwardsOrlando, Florida, USANov. 11, 2006Deadline: Sept. 15, 2006

The Florida Motion Picture and Television Association (FMPTA) is hosting the Crystal Reel Awards (CRA). The Crystal Reel Awards have been compared to Floridas version of the Oscars and the Emmys with many different categories (behind and in front of the camera) from students to professionals. Entries are limited to work produced in the State of Florida between Jan. 1, and Dec. 31, 2005.

The theme is Back to the Future. This is built around reviving the success of CRAs industry and rolling back the entry fees so that filmmakers and talent can easily afford to enter more categories. FMPTA would like to see scores of winners from last years production schedule. All categories are still open and FMPTA will be accepting all entries through Sept. 15, 2006. The judging will take place out of state this year prior to the awards given out on Nov. 11.

Information about all the activities is listed as well as tickets for the Awards weekend. This years event will be held at the Plaza Theater in Downtown Orlando.
