About Tambay Film and Video Festival
TRULY AN INDEPENDENT FILM FESTIVAL EXPERIENCE The Tambay Film and Video Festival, based in Tampa, FL, began in November 1999 by a group of filmmakers who saw the need for a festival which truly catered to and acknowledged the struggles of countless talented independent filmmakers from Florida and throughout the world. We at the Tambay Film and Video Festival strive to present work to the public, potential distributors and other filmmakers, as well as creating a film forum for Florida filmmaking. The festival is still organized and programmed by filmmakers. Several films got picked up for distribution. Almost all films got invited to other festivals. We believe in the profound power of the media arts to influence the public and are committed to exposing audiences to new ideas and perspectives beyond the mainstream. While the festival is growing in size and seeks to offer filmmakers a good level of exposure and an excellent venue, it is above all a community event. Tambay Film Festival is a 501(c)3 non profit - organization.
