Film Florida, a not-for-profit association that provides a leadership role in Florida’s film and entertainment industries, is seeking nominees for its Legends Award, honoring pioneers from the Sunshine State in the film, television and production industry.

Launched in 2006, the Film Florida Legends Awards are open to any moviemaker—in front of or behind the camera—who has made a significant impact on moviemaking in the state. Past honorees have included underwater movie and television veteran Ricou Brownings (The Creature from the Black Lagoon) and Jordan Klein Sr. (Jaws: The Revenge).

“It is our past Legends and pioneers who are providing us with a wealth of stories, history and insight into the accomplishments and contributions of the individuals that are worthy of the Legends honor,” says Richard Seres, chair of the Legends committee. “Not necessarily a household name or face but a person who has inspired generations in the industry.”

Nominations are now being accepted via email at {encode=”legends@filmflorida.org” title=”legends@filmflorida.org”} through March 15, 2009. Nominations should include the candidate’s name, contact info, brief bio and a few reasons about why the individual should be considered. Film Florida will host the Annual Legends Awards in Miami Beach during the organization’s annual meeting in June.
