When people think of places to go to get an education in the world of film and theater, South Florida is probably not the first place they think about. That is unfortunate because we are blessed to have one fantastic school right in our own back yard, The Burt Reynolds Institute for Film and Television (BRIFT). Founded by the man himself over thirty years ago, BRIFT is a not-for-profit organization that has classes for acting and filmmaking. According the institute's website, they also sometimes feature lectures by experts in the film industry and even celebrities.
This Saturday night, November 2, The Burt Reynolds Institute for Film and Television will be holding a building fundraiser in conjunction with BRIFT Chair Douglas Rill's birthday party and you are cordially invited to it. The fun starts at 7:00pm and all you need to go is RSVP by calling 561-743-9955.
The suggested donation is $50 with a check or credit card and it is well worth that price. Food will be provided by Blue Front Bar-B-Q and the beverages by Three Olives Vodka. Your donation includes one free drink ticket. A DJ will also be on hand to help you dance the night away. Halloween may be over, but guests are encouraged to dress up as their favorite characters.
Not only will you have a great time this Saturday night, you can sleep well later knowing your money is going to a great institution founded by one of our state's favorite residents. Don't delay, there are still some tickets left, but they are going fast. Hope to see you there!
