Just got word this afternoon that the Florida Film Festival, running April 8 through 17, here in Orlando, has added a last-minute celebrity guest to its line-up.
Actor and OSCAR®-nominee Edward James Olmos will be appearing at the Enzian on April 15 for a special showing of his classic film Stand and Deliver.
“An Evening with Edward James Olmos” will start at 7:30pm with a showing of the film, followed by a Q&A with the actor. Stand and Deliver was one of the most highly regarded independent films of 1988 and swept the Independent Spirit Awards with six wins. It also received several other award nods, including an Oscar® (for Olmos), two Golden Globes®, and the 1988 Sundance Grand Jury Prize.
Olmos first gained worldwide attention as a regular on the 80s TV series Miami Vice, and was most recently appeared on the TV reboot of the Battlestar Galactica series.
“We’re thrilled to host Mr. Olmos and his extraordinary film for our 20th anniversary,” said Henry Maldonado, President of Enzian and the Florida Film Festival. “Stand and Deliver sits proudly and comfortably on that shelf of independent movies that burst upon the scene and now live forever.”
“An Evening with Edward James Olmos” tickets are only $20, and the event is also included in the Platinum Passes. Purchase tickets online at the Florida Film Festival website.
