If your idea of a pleasant Labor Day weekend involves staying the hell out of the sun (and rain, and clouds of mosquitos), the idea of spending three days in the air-conditioned dark of a movie theater may appeal to you. The Central Florida Film Festival takes place at the West Orange Cinemas in Ocoee (come on, it's not that far) Friday through Sunday. Highlights include Hoovey, a new entry in the teenage-athlete-with-a-disability genre starring everyone's favorite Puddy, Patrick Warburton. Director Sean McNamara will be on site to talk about the film after the Friday screening. McNamara is best known for directing Soul Surfer, a movie about a different teenage athlete with a disability.

Local filmmakers Fez Shah and Tom Feeney debut their feature-length film Eating Saltines on Saturday, which features cameos from several local comics in a medical workplace comedy.

Horror fans will want to check out a special screening of the 2005 horror-comedy flick Feast, followed by a Q&A with the director, John Gulager, and two of the stars, Clu Gulager and Diane Goldner.

The Central Florida Film Festival also features a full slate of shorts, documentaries and other features, and it won't contribute to your inevitable bout with skin cancer.

9:30 a.m. Friday, 10 a.m. Saturday, 11 a.m. Sunday | West Orange Cinemas, 1575 Maguire Road, Ocoee | | $25 per day
