TAMPA, Fla., Nov. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- On November 22, 2013, the world will remember John Fitzgerald Kennedy, the 35th president of the United States, as he was assassinated while traveling through Dallas, Texas, in an open-top convertible 50 years ago.

Coincidentally, JFK was visiting Tampa, FL on November 18 just days before his trip to Dallas. Tampa-based indie Film Company, Gulf + Atlantic Films (GAF) recently wrapped their short film titled "The Limbo Kings," featuring the foursome in a fantasy drama taking place in an afterlife waiting room.

Director Eric Polins said "The film is an original screenplay developed years ago with the 50th anniversary in mind. We wanted to produce a very unique film that captured all the players in Kennedy's life with a unique twist. It's an amazing story and we couldn't pick a better time to wrap it up for the 2014 film festival season."

Polins, the founder of 16-year-old GAF, is no stranger to the independent film market. GAF produced a feature film in 2006 titled "Descansos" starring Gary Busey, Charles Durning, Cindy Taylor, and Tom Nowicki. He was also a board member with The Gasparilla International Film Festival for five years and is a past president.

St. Pete-based Cinematographer Curtis Graham of Greyhouse Films jointly produced "The Limbo Kings". Graham directed the recently released "The Investigator" that was written by Richard Romano, Ray Romano's brother.

The cast and crew is a "who's who" in the Florida film market. The Retribution Agent is veteran actor Michael Ray Davis, JFK is captured by Michael Newman, comedian Tony Gaud gives a bone chilling portrayal of Lee Harvey Oswald, singer/actress Stephanie Coatney channels Monroe like no other, and Jack Amos is a dead ringer for Ruby.

Dale Gordon, Executive Director of the Tampa Hillsborough Film & Digital Media Commission said, "I had the opportunity to visit the set of 'The Limbo Kings' and was immediately impressed with the quality of the production, the story, talent, crew, and their vision of making a strong film that will compete nationwide in the film festival circuit. It's projects like this that showcases our great pool of talent and crew in our region."
