About: In the early 1900s, Jacksonville was the “World’s Winter Film Capital”, attracting more than 30 film studios and producing serving as the location for more than 800 silent films. While the chaos and disruption of early-industry film production was too much for Jacksonville’s citizens, this moment in our city’s time is iconic and unique. Travel back in time with us to the early days of film, with glitz, glamour and elegance.
Proceeds from the #DTJax Gala benefit the Lively and Beautiful Sidewalks (LABS) placemaking initiative to turn passive spaces into active public places. LABS is based on four principles: create walkable connectivity, activate the streetscape, enhance public space and engage the community.
During our 2020 Gala, we created an installation of our vision for our outdoor dining space on Hogan Street and in 2021 the Patio on Hogan was completed. Thank you for helping us bring our vision to life!
