Naples International Film Festival

Opening Night Film & Party

Get ready for an amazing night at the seventh annual Naples International Film Festival Opening Night Film & Party!

NIFF's Opening Night Film will be the documentary feature film The Last Man On The Moon. This film is appropriate for ages 8 and older.

When Apollo astronaut Eugene Cernan stepped off the moon in 1972 he left his footprints and his daughter's initials in the lunar dust. Only now, forty years later, is he ready to share his epic but deeply personal story. Cernan's burning ambition carried him to the spectacular and hazardous environment of space and to the moon. But there was a heavy price to pay for the fame and privilege that followed. The Last Man On The Moon brings to the big screen rare archive material, compelling Visual FX, and unprecedented access to an iconic and historic figure.

Director Mark Craig and Captain Eugene Cernan are scheduled to attend for a discussion immediately following the film.

After the film presentation, VIP ticket holders will enjoy food, drinks, and a fabulous party!
