For the 10th time, local Alexandra Bello will be showcasing the work of local filmmakers at her event called Film Carpet. Film Carpet X is sure to be bigger than all of her events that have led up to it. At each event, she has shown short films and other types of videos and trailers. She has featured different types of entertainment as well, everything from an electronic saxophone player to a ballet piece accompanied by a violinist. You never know what to expect. In addition, she always gathers plenty of sponsors to be able to give out some great raffle prizes. The best part about one of her events is that people can strike a pose on the red carpet and be interviewed by the local paparazzi. It is a great chance to network with others in the biz and for budding filmmakers to have their work be seen.

Slated to be shown this night are the following short films: Meet My Mother by Alexandra Bello from ABPTV, directed by Stephano R. Schlanger, 8 Count by David Fumero, Prank from Vivian Orozco from Humaya Films, The Cell by Bryan Thompson from Imani Films, Americana by Jacob Allinson from Devil Cat Studios, written by Zach Quinones.

In addition, films that were shown in previous renditions of Film Carpet will be considered for awards to be given this night. There is even a $500 prize for Best Screenplay submitted to #Film Freeway’s Festival’s page on Facebook.

Film Carpet X will be on July 30 at 7 p.m. at the Classic Gateway Theater, at 1820 E. Sunrise Blvd. in Ft. Lauderdale. Red carpet starts at 6 p.m. Tickets are $14; VIP is$24 and includes three raffle tickets, medium popcorn, medium soda, historic Film Carpet Magazine. Tickets can be purchased at www.eventbrite.com/e/film-carpet-x-the-awards-tickets-35905075046.
