Kevin Smith, the writer and director of such hits as Clerks, MallRats, Chasing Amy, Jersey Girl, Dogma, Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back as well as the soon to be released Clerks 2, will be appearing at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida on Saturday, September 23rd, 2007. This is a rare opportunity to see Kevin Smith in a non-collegiate environment. The event is being presented by Florida’s Future Filmmakers and sponsored by several organizations including Full Sail Real World Education, Florida Film Monthly magazine (http://www.floridafilmmonthly.com/), and Women in Film & Television – Florida.
“Kevin Smith is the real deal,” said Michael McNamara, President of Florida Future Filmmakers and the force behind bringing Kevin Smith to Orlando. “He was one of the most unique voices to emerge during the American independent filmmaking renaissance of the 1990’s and continues to be a key player in the industry.”
Smith’s Orlando appearance, titled An Afternoon with Kevin Smith, follows on the heels of his highly anticipated movie sequel Clerks 2 (http://www.clerks2.com), which will open later this month. Word on the street is the sequel is as good if not better than the original.
An Afternoon with Kevin Smith will begin at 10 a.m. and Kevin Smith will arrive at 2 p.m. He will engage in a question and answer session with attendees of the event. The event is scheduled to end at 4 p.m., but because of Mr. Smith’s willingness to answer any and all questions his fans have, the event may last several additional hours.
Tickets are on sale now for the event. Tickets are only available for purchase on-line at http://www.floridafilmmonthly.com. Each ticket is $35.00 – all tickets are general admission, as seating will be on a first come, first serve basis. Tickets will also be sold the day of the event, if available for $50.00.
