    We’ve always had a blast covering Florida Film Fest over the past five years, and the extra events have always been a good time. The influx of culture, both in film and food, has been vastly appreciated by locals for years and brings excitement to the city. These extra curricular events have become the icing on an already delicious cake, and over the past few years they’ve only gotten sweeter.
