TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) -- The FSU Veterans Film Festival is hosting the world premiere of an Iraq War Documentary, “Apache Warrior”.

Filmmakers say this is an opportunity for any viewer to get up close and personal with the action, as the film will include real-life footage from airborne helicopters.

Christian Tureaud, Co-Director of the film, said, "Traditional documentaries are a talking head kind of retrospectively telling you what happened. We try to not have many talking heads, we try to have the footage just show you what happened with a narrative underneath, so you feel like you're there in an immersive first person style of experience."

FSU has hosted the festival since 2011 with the goal of raising awareness of veteran’s issues and initiatives.

The festival began on Thursday at 5 p.m. with a reception at Wescott Plaza and concluded at 8 p.m. with a comments and question and answer session with "Apache Warrior" directors David Salzberg and Tureaud.
