WELCOME TO THE TAMPA BAY FILM TAMPA FILM REVIEW SITE
Why review Tampa indie film? As of 2011, there is no professional Tampa indie film community. Tampa filmmakers are not respected by the indie film industry, and Tampa indie film is not even remotely close to being "on the map". While this is not entirely undeserved, due to many poor and "me-too" derivative independent films being produced by Tampa filmmakers, it doesn't have to be, and it won't be the case for much longer. There will eventually be a professional Tampa indie film community. One day, some of the most innovative indie films will be made by talented Tampa filmmakers. One day, Tampa filmmakers will be respected by the indie film industry, and Tampa indie film will finally be "on the map". We have faith that, one day, Tampa indie film will be a leader in indie film worldwide, setting standards and starting trends in filmmaking; Tampa filmmakers will unite, and make the Tampa Bay area of Florida Hollywood East, without Hollywood coming here to "make it happen". We'll do it ourselves!
Again, why review Tampa indie film? Because we need to see where Tampa indie film is. We need to set standards, and see what's going on for what it really is. We need to learn from our shortcomings, and adjust our triumphs, to set new standards which others will have to work at. Tampa Bay Film, the voice of Tampa indie film, will be reviewing and covering all aspects of Tampa indie film, and we are the authority on what's going on. By referencing our reviews, Tampa filmmakers will be able to see exactly where Tampa filmmaking is, and what needs to be done. That's why reviewing Tampa indie film is so important, and that's why we are doing it. The reviews will be published here on Tampa Film Review, a Tampa Bay Film site, and the related coverage will be published on the main Tampa Bay Film site.
Site back, enjoy the ride, and take all criticism constructively. It's for our own good, and it's our only hope to finally get Tampa indie film "on the map".
TAMPA BAY FILM TAMPA FILM REVIEW
The authority on the Tampa indie film industry. Reviews and articles on Tampa indie film, Tampa film Festivals, and Tampa-produced films. We are not affiliated with, and do not endorse, The Tampa Film Review Tampa film festival.
The Tampa Film Review web site is a review index for top Tampa indie film resource web site Tampa Bay Film, the voice of Tampa indie film. A good amount of resources for Tampa Bay Film go toward covering Tampa film festivals and attending Tampa indie film events. We also write extensive reviews of Tampa films, Tampa film festivals, Tampa film schools, Tampa film workshops, and anything else related to the Tampa film scene.
Covering Tampa film festivals is our top priority, and we are working on building a comprehensive Tampa film festival review database which will become the Tampa film industry standard for both the Tampa indie film scene and the upcoming Tampa indie film community. It is our hope the Tampa film festival organizers of the future will learn from the mistakes made my other Tampa film festival organizers which are revealed and addressed in our Tampa film festival reviews, and are inspired to review their Tampa film festival event plan and create better Tampa film festivals. We are already learning from the mistakes of past Tampa film festivals, and use our Tampa film festival reviews as references as we plan our own film festivals. Tampa Bay Film, in partnership with Tampa stage production company Eventi Stage, and Tampa event planning company Eventi Events, is currently working on four Tampa film festival properties (not counting our current Tampa film festival property, the Tampa Bay Film Online Film Festival, which is the top Tampa film festival at this time!). Our main Tampa film festival event, the Tampa Film Showcase monthly film festival and professional networking event series, is the backbone, and the workhorse, of our planned fleet. It will inspire the Tampa indie film scene, and will serve as the foundation of the formation of the first professional Tampa indie film community.
This Tampa Film Review web site has no affiliation with the Tampa film festival known as "The Tampa Film Review". We do not participate with, or endorse, The Tampa Film Review film festival. This web site does not infringe upon any registered trademarks, trade names, or copyrights on record at the time it was created. This web site is not for The Tampa Film Review Tampa film festival, although we have links to reviews on Tampa Bay Film covering that film festival. This web site is a Tampa film review resource index for reviews on Tampa indie film, Tampa film festivals, Tampa produced films, and indie film production resources.
