Celebrating the Keys’ long and notorious reputation as a haven for smuggling and drug-running, fishing and fighting, falling in love, and other nefarious activities, our opening night feature film and shorts programs will bring you similarly-themed renegade films from around the world.

  • Opening Night (Thurs., 6/7) will kick off with the new Zellner Brothers feature film Damsel (Sundance/Berlin 2018), starring Robert Pattinson, including a Q&A with the brother director team!
  • Billy Corben (Square Grouper, Cocaine Cowboys, Dawg Fight, ESPN’s 30 for 30 The U) will show a sneak peak of his latest project, A Sunny Place for Shady People,
  • Hometown filmmaker and KWFF Director Quincy Perkins (Love in Youth) for the closing night awards party
  • Nights Two and Three (Fri. & Sat. 6/8-9) will feature four shorts programs by international and local filmmakers — one using Stock Island footage from the 1960’s sure to take you back!
