Our Partners


The 48hr Film Project & RFF

Rendezvous is so excited about a new partnership we've made!  We've partnered with 48 Hour Film Project Jacksonville to help give local filmmakers another outlet to show their talents!  

Rendezvous will be presenting the Director or Producer (in other words the main person who signed the team up) of the Judges top winner and People's Choice top winner with a VIP pass for the festival.  The other winners (again the Director / Producer who signed the team up), with a day pass each.  All winning team members will be offered discounted ticket prices to the festival.  And ALL 48 Hour Film Project Jacksonville winning films will be screening at Rendezvous in September.  

And some icing on the cake - The 48 Hour Film Project is even offering discounts off the current registration fees through our newsletter.  This code is good for $10 off whatever the current registration rate is, and it's good throughout the rest of registration. You will need to make sure to use this special Code: FILM18GRP_23DR

2018 Film Festival Update

We've got some truly awesome things in the works for Filmmakers this year!

  • We've added a filmed in Florida block - so make sure you submit under that if you shot your film in Florida (remember time is still limited so there's no guarantee that all Florida submissions will be selected)
  • Door Split: So for any Director / Producer present at their screening - the festival will split at the door ticket sales with the Director / Producer - so the more people you pull in to see your movie the more money you potentially can make.  (note if there are more than one movie in a block the sales are split between all present filmmakers in the block)
  • New Awards: This year we've added to the Best in Categories and People's Choice, to include Best Actor, Best Actress and Best Child Actor / Actress.

About Us

Our History

A 3 day Film Festival Celebrating 11 years on Amelia Island, Florida September 20- 22 2018 

On May 19, 2014 the Amelia Island Film Festival Board of Directors approved Re-Branding to create The Rendezvous Film Festival. RFF is the only Film and Music Festival in North Florida and Southeast Georgia. RFF is all about Entertainment: bringing the artists and community together for a 3 day celebration on the beach.

​Why the Name Rendezvous? It is an homage to the Evan’s Rendezvous, located in American Beach, a Music club that once hosted famed musicians such as Louis Armstrong, James Brown, Billie Daniels, and Ray Charles in the 1930′s, 40′s, & 50′s in a special beach community that was created for inclusion. In 1964, American Beach and the Rendezvous were hit hard by Hurricane Dora and were decimated. It is time to recognize the proud history that the Rendezvous represents and its contribution to the entertainment industry.
