The Florida Project tells the story of a precocious six year-old and her rag-tag group of friends whose summer break is filled with childhood wonder, possibility and a sense of adventure while the adults around them struggle with hard times. 

About the Director:

Sean Baker is one of most respected filmmakers in the U.S. after “Tangerine” (2015), “Starlet” (2012) and “Prince Of Broadway” (2008). He wrote THE FLORIDA PROJECT with his frequent collaborator, Chris Bergoch, and shot the film in 2016 in the neighborhoods around Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida.
