The 37th Miami Film Festival is back this March 6 - 15th and running throughout various venues around Miami-Dade. The event is a world-class platform for International and Ibero-American films, highlighting the work of the world’s best emerging and renowned filmmakers to Miami’s diverse community. Last year’s Miami Film Festival attracted 45,000+ attendees along with 300 filmmakers, producers, talent and industry professionals from around the world. Major publications like VarietyThe Hollywood ReporterScreen and Indiewire attend to review of the films and cash awards totaling more than $150,000 are distributed in different competition categories.  

This year there are more than 125 different films ranging from narratives, documentaries and short films on display. Many have been created by local filmmakers or feature a Miami-centric theme. The festival will launch with a screening of “The Burnt Orange Heresy” and close with a documentary about the legacy of Puerto Rican astrologer Walter Mercado which has been distributed by Netflix following the world premier at the Sundance Film Festival last month.
