Dunedin, Fla. – It seems semi ironic that a town that has no movie theater would play host to an event that culminates around movies. But that is exactly what Dunedin, Florida is doing Jan. 8 – 14 when they celebrate cinema with the second annual Dunedin International Film Festival.
The Dunedin International Film Festival has partnered with five Downtown businesses to provide the best cinematic experiences possible for attendees. With submissions from 89 countries, this seven day film festival will see film fans from all over the globe embark on the Pinellas county Gulf coast town.
