Filmmaker Jean Luc-Godard once said, "The cinema is truth at 24 frames per second," making slow-mo sports replays and sped-up Benny Hill gags nothing but cruel, cruel lies. Get the real deal with today's Groupon: for $50, you get a four-day VIP pass to the Orlando Film Festival (a $100 value), which runs November 3–7 at the Plaza Cinema Café.
The Orlando Film Festival brings contemporary independent cinema and a legion of directors and industry insiders to Orlando, providing the general public with four days of free screenings of high-quality films. A VIP pass gets you priority seats at screenings, as well as very important access to every nook, cranny, and festival after-party throughout the long weekend, such as the VIP-only soiree at Latitudes from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. on Friday, November 5 and wrap party featuring Edwin McCain live at Ember on Saturday, November 6. Celebrity guests, one of which is a still-mysterious Oscar-winning actress, will be in attendance, so feel free to grill them on Hollywood’s thinly veiled agenda to take over the geo-political sphere with adorable talking animals. Your pass also provides complimentary drinks and appetizers, as well as half-price food at many of the area’s participating bars and restaurants. Scoring access to non-filmic festival events like filmmaker and VIP lounges, discussion panels, and more, you’ll have enough alternative entertainment and excitement to keep you busy between film screenings. For VIP clans with movie buff kids, a family-friendly screening schedule is available to keep young ones safe from age-inappropriate material.
Filmmakers attend more than 80% of the festival’s screenings, and many hold post-show Q&As, giving you ample opportunity to get the director’s intention behind any twist endings in which the protagonist learns he's an evil ghost twin who has dreamed the entire movie. Unlike drive-in movie theaters, which are often enclosed in yards of electrified barbed wire, a four-day pass provides ultra-up-close access to a series of cinema’s most exciting contemporary offerings, along with the appropriate company, hor d’oeuvres, and exotically flavored popcorn dust for a VIP weekend.
