Now in its fourth season, the "15-Minutes of Fame" is a showcase for independent films that are 15 minutes or less, produced by filmmakers from across the U.S., and around the globe.  The festival was founded in 2009 by husband-and-wife filmmakers, Ray and Migdalia Etheridge.

This year's film festival was held at Palm Bay's TEICHER THEATRES, which is located across the street from City Hall, in the Palm Bay West Shopping Center. (160 Malabar Road).

There were five 2-hour programs, at 1pm, 3pm, 5pm, 7pm, and 9pm.  Each  2-hour show was different, and all films were shown only once.

The festival hosted over 50 films, hand-picked from nearly 200 entries, submitted by filmmakers from around the world. Many of the films were world premieres, and several others were award-winning films that had been showcased in other festivals.

The movies were from 1-minute, to 15-minutes in length, and were a generous mixture of comedy, drama, animation, documentaries, and music videos.

Admission: $2.00 per 2-hour show.
