The 27th Annual Palm Beaches Student Showcase of Films (SSOF) is a WRAP!  Aspiring filmmakers, writers, graphic designers, and digital media artists who were selected as finalists were celebrated at a red carpet award show at Maltz Jupiter Theatre on Friday, May 6th. 

The award show was hosted by award-winning actor/director Frank Licari (South Florida PBS’ On the Town in The Palm Beaches with Frank Licari) and has attracted a standing-room-only audience of students, celebrity presenters, industry professionals, government dignitaries, media and more.

This years entries were viewed and evaluated by a panel of 49 entertainment industry experts from around the globe, including: Vanilla Ice, Kelsey Scott (How to Get Away With Murder and 12 Years A Slave), Michael Orland (American Idol) and Jane Rumbaua (The Falcon and The Winter Soldier), just to name a few.
