After the success of The Craft Film Fest at Green Bench Brewing Company in 2015, the Creative Producing Team was inspired to expand the festival, and Et Cultura was born.
Starting on November 16th, Et Cultura, a multi-day culturally immersive event, will spotlight Florida-based talent alongside national/international artists while cultivating St. Petersburg’s reputation as a premiere arts destination in America.
The founders have all spent a considerable amount of their young adult and adult lives growing up in St. Petersburg, and couldn’t think of a better way to participate in it’s continued development and regional/national awareness than starting an event that could become a signature part of St. Petersburg’s cultural landscape.
The soul of a community thrives on the arts that it supports. Et Cultura wants to help build the next generation of artists, filmmakers, musicians, and makers by giving a 10% donation of all sponsorships to The St. Petersburg Arts Alliance who strives to be the umbrella organization for the arts — advocating for the arts, supporting arts education, facilitating the growth of the creative arts community, and driving arts-related economic development in St. Petersburg.
Chamber members and St. Pete Young Professionals are eligible for special discounts to the festival. St. Pete Young Professionals can purchase $25 All Access Passes to the 5 Day event, with a special invitation to the VIP Party on November 18th at Green Bench Brewing Co. Chamber members are able to purchase $15 General Admission tickets and $125 VIP passes.
