Maitland – Due North of Orlando a few miles, you’ll find Maitland. With its close proximity to Orlando, and the popularity of the Florida Film Festival held here annually, this is a quickly growing community that is forecasted to continue to grow by leaps and bounds for years to come. Maitland is one of my favorite cities rich in history with a mix of scenic, tree-filled parks, friendly neighborhoods, an active arts and history community, a growing downtown center and free family style Movies in the Park series. A “historical corridor” with homes dating back to the late 1800’s. For over 30 years, Enzian Theater is Central Florida’s only full-time alternative cinema and home of Eden Bar and the Florida Film Festival. Enzian exists to entertain, inspire, educate, and connect the community through film.
