“Film Florida congratulates Barry Jenkins, Adele Romanski and the entire cast and crew of Florida-produced Moonlight for their historic weekend, which included six Film Independent Spirit Awards including Best Feature and three Oscars including the Academy Award for Best Picture. Moonlight has been a wonderful ambassador for South Florida and all Floridians as they have taken us on this magical ride through award season. Despite recent challenges for our industry in Florida, Moonlight shows the exceptional talent and creativity produced by our colleges and universities in addition to showing the potential of the film industry in our state.”
