The Orlando Film Festival kicked off an action packed four days tonight with Orlando City SC debuting its 47-minute documentary titled “Making History.”
Three screenings took place as fans, players and club officials all got chance to take a look back at the history of the club from its start in Austin, Texas, through to its move to Orlando and then its journey to Major League Soccer earlier this year.
The film was produced by Orlando City’s Decio Lopes (pictured above right), a long-time producer in Brazil as he brought his cinematic expertise to Orlando when he joined Orlando City’s New Business Ventures group.“This important piece of work captures the historic day of March 8th – the first ever MLS game for Orlando City, the first goal – and all that led up to that incredible moment,” said Lopes. “It was an honor to create this project with the people directly involved in the journey. But more importantly, to produce this for the generations of future fans to see how their Club was formed.”
The Orlando Film Festival is a four-day event that brings screenings of feature films, documentaries and short films to downtown Orlando’s Cobb Plaza Cinema cafe.
