Remastered original independent film resource web site. Fortified with new content, resources, and tactics. Built to support checks and balances and professional accountability in local independent films.

Welcome to the 2023 Tampa Bay Film web site, which is an upgraded remake of the original site which launched on January 11, 2007. This site is the original site, completely redone, although it retains its original look, and which will, eventually, have next-generation talent and industry web site technology and tactics added. It contains the original Tampa Bay Film content, updated, of course, and will serve as a preview for what is to come with our other independent film industry, Tampa Bay and Florida independent film market, and talent resource web sites, which are the successors of this one; those other sites will be even larger, more comprehensive, more effective, and more advanced than this one.
That said, there will have unique content and information on this site that the others will not have on them. This site has been updated for the current and future industry and market environments, and is designed to be highly and quickly adaptable, also being modular and scalable.
This web site will also share in a strategy that will be emphasized in our sister site, to help filmmakers, talent, and other industry professionals identify, avoid, work against, and disrupt independent film scams, unethical filmmakers, people whom lie, cheat, and steal, people whom exploit others for their own gain, reckless ambitious people whom think that they can do anything that they want while ignoring the consequences and at the expense of others and the market, and independent film projects that are not good for the careers of anyone involved.
Welcome to the beginning of the future, from our foundation in the past.
