Film Selection Announced for September 28th's Second Annual Tampa Bay Humanitarian Film Festival
More than 40 films by international filmmakers - including six Florida films - will highlight this annual festival.
The selected films include six films made in Florida as well as student film projects.
The selected Florida Films are:
· Trafficked in Paradise by Olivia Wilson
· A Friend Called Spiderman by Nicholas Canning
· The Flip Side by William Stead
· More to Life by Joshua Bowen
· Epiphany by Koula Sossiadis Kazista and Katina Sossiadis

"The films we are screening this year come from around the world and each film uniquely presents a different viewpoint on humanity," said event organizer Lisa Mansell. "For example, in the Foundation for a Drug Free World, we are screening films that show the viewpoint of an addict, the child of an addict, law enforcement and people who have specifically decided to live a drug free life while making their living as musicians in the Punk music scene."
The festival will begin at noon on the 28th with a reception and VIP badge pick up at the Scientology Information Center (500 Cleveland Street). Films will begin screening at 1pm.
Sponsored by the Church of Scientology Flag Service Organization, United for Human Rights Florida Chapter, the Way to Happiness Association of Tampa Bay, the Florida Chapter of the Foundation for a Drug-Free World and others, the festival will screen 41 films in the different humanitarian program centers along North Fort Harrison Avenue between Cleveland and Drew Streets.
