Orlando Film Festival starts tonight with a movie about Orlando City Soccer Club



Tonight is the kickoff for the Orlando Film Festival, a four-day event that brings screenings of feature films, documentaries and short films to downtown Orlando's Cobb Plaza Cinema Cafe. Although opening night is technically tomorrow (the festival opens with the feature film Blue, about a man with blue-tinged skin and a woman who learns to love him despite his odd condition), tonight the festival screens a documentary that'll thrill fans of the Orlando City Soccer Club. 

Making History, which tells the story of how the soccer club came to be, will make its debut with a 6:30 p.m. screening. If you can't make that one, it'll air again at 7:45 p.m. and a final time at 9 p.m. 

Tickets are $10, and you can get them here. Check out the trailer for the movie below.
