Just Launched!

Siren by the Sea is a film festival series produced by Siren Productions Media in Ormond Beach, Florida.

Our mission is to bring a variety of independent films to the northeastern part of central Florida while providing a fun venue for films to screen and film-makers to get together for networking and promoting in a tavern-style setting.

In January 2020 we'll be starting off with a Screenplay Competition to recognize talented writers.

Our first live event in the Siren by the Sea tavern series will take place on July 11th and will be focusing on the Comedy genre.

A new festival in the series will take place every four months with a different genre.
