ANNOUNCING 2023 TCIFAM
LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD RECIPIENT,
Considered by many a prominent Florida film industry icon, Frank Eberling has left his mark as a multi-award-winning film and television Writer, Producer, Director, and Cinematographer with over fifty years of experience in the field, producing
thousands of film and television segments for broadcast locally and world-wide. He has been awarded an EMMY® , six TELLYs, a CINE GOLDEN EAGLE, as well as several
Television Journalism awards.
Recipient of Governor Bob Graham’s first FLORIDA SCREENWRITING AWARD, Frank Eberling has directed over 100 projects for The Armed Forces Radio and Television Service/Department of Defense, and another 100 productions for PBS. He has written and directed full-length feature films that have enjoyed successful distribution runs on Netflix and Amazon Prime both Nationally and internationally and is author of seven successful seven novels and three play anthologies, all of which are available on AMAZON.
However, Mr. Eberling’s influence reaches far beyond his over 5 decades of filmmaking. Fifty years ago, he and several other eleventh grade teachers from where he taught at Palm Beach Gardens High School developed a filmmaking curriculum. One year the students created over seventy short 8mm films.
For over thirty years, Frank has been recruited to teach writing, literature, and filmmaking courses and seminars. He has lectured at Florida Atlantic University Lifelong Learning Center, Production groups, Theatre groups, Film Festivals, Palm Beach State College, Public schools and Libraries. Topics include Florida Literary History, Florida Filmmaking and Micro-Budget Film Production, sharing with thousands of young aspiring Florida filmmakers his knowledge and skill set, mentoring thousands of students, many who have gone on to have very successful careers of their own. Frank also taught alongside Burt Reynolds at the Burt Reynolds Institute for Film and Theatre for over ten years, learning so much from Mr. Reynolds.
On Sunday, October 15, 2023, we will be honoring Mr Frank Eberling with the 2023 Treasure Coast International Film Festival Lifetime Achievement Award during the TCIFAM Awards Gala.
